London Conference

You are kindly invited to submit proposals for a one-day Conference on the music of Steve Reich, to be held at King’s Place, London, on Saturday 14 February, 2015 as part of a weekend of performances of music by Steve Reich, some of which will have the composer in attendance.

All scholars interested in Reich’s music are invited to submit paper proposals for the Conference, with particular emphasis on the repertoire being performed during the weekend: Four Organs (1970); Clapping Music (1972); Sextet (1984); New York Counterpoint (1985); Different Trains (1988); Double Sextet (2007); Mallet Quartet (2009), and WTC 9/11 (2010).

The conference aims to make accessible to concert-going audiences some of the latest research on Reich’s music, and contributions are welcomed in the form of individual papers (20 minutes) and themed sessions of 3-4 papers, as well as non-traditional sessions or events, such as poster sessions. For individual papers, abstracts containing a maximum of 400 words should be sent as email attachments, by 1 September, 2014, to the Secretary of the Society – kay.potter@hotmail.co.uk

For themed sessions, please collate abstracts for the constituent papers and a short abstract of the session theme into a single document and submit as above. The conference committee is also happy to consider presenting lecture-recitals.

Further details of the event are available at the King’s Place website.
