> CALL FOR ARTICLES
> Special Issue: New uses of music in media
> Trans. Transcultural Music Review
> TRANS-Transcultural Music Review 16 (2012) will publish a
> special dossier on the
> new forms of music in audiovisual media. The dossier will be
> prepared in
> collaboration with the research group “Música y medios
> audiovisuales” from the
> Society for Ethnomusicology-SIBE/IASPM-Spain and will be edited
> by Teresa
> Fraile, Eduardo Viñuela, and María Edurne Zuazu.
> For this dossier, we are particularly interested in the role of
> music in the
> emergence of new genres (such as mash-ups, lip-dubs, etc.) and
> in the
> transformation of the discursive strategies of the traditional
> media (film, TV
> programs, music videos, video games, etc.). The contemporary
> panorama is constantly changing. On the one hand, there is a
> interchange between different genres and formats, such as the
> dialogue between
> music video, advertising and film; an interchange in which the
> music is deeply
> involved. This enables music to take different functions in the
> discourses of
> these media, thus transforming them, and at the same time, opens
> a new palette
> of expressive resources. On the other hand, the spread and
> democratization of
> new technologies has brought about these new musical genres that
> also imply new
> forms of consumption and point toward a different aesthetic framework.
> Music is now at the core of a boiling, creative audiovisual
> production where its
> relationships with image and the other sound elements are not
> what they used to
> be, obliging us to rethink our approaches and understanding of
> the role of music
> in media.
> We welcome contributions that approach these new phenomena and
> especially those with an interdisciplinary perspective. Some
> topics include but
> are not limited to the following:
> · Music and the blurring of media genres and formats.
> · Sound art and image (sound installations, etc.).
> · Music in film trailers.
> · Audiovisual formats in live performance.
> · New forms of consumption and technology.
> · Rockumentaries or “making of” the album, band, etc.
> · Production of music for and with mobile technology (cell
> phones, MP3 players,
> · New theoretical models for media analysis.
> We open the call for submission of articles on this topic.
> Articles may be written in English, Spanish, French, Italian or
> Deadline for submitting originals: October 15, 2011.
