> 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 
> audiovisual 
> panorama is constantly changing. On the one hand, there is a 
> fruitful 
> 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 
> processes, 
> especially those with an interdisciplinary perspective. Some 
> topics include but 
> are not limited to the following:
> Topics:
> · 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, 
> etc.).
> · 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 
> Portuguese. 
> Deadline for submitting originals: October 15, 2011.
