Minimalism Extended: The Seventh International Conference on Minimalist Music
Deadline for submissions: 22 February 2019

You are kindly invited to submit proposals for the Seventh International Conference on Minimalist Music, to be held at Cardiff University from 22-26 August, 2019.

This conference will be built on a platform of shared dialogue, where the aesthetics of musical minimalism are seen to engage with other contemporary art forms, interrogate and assimilate other musical styles and traditions, and adapt to the stage and screen.

The organizers especially encourage papers that explore the intersection of minimalist music and other artistic forms:

* minimalism and/on the stage
* minimalism and/on the screen
* minimalism and/in the printed word
* minimalism and/in the visual arts

The organizers would also welcome presentations on:

* core minimalist works and composers
* minimalist precursors
* minimalism within and outside the USA
* minimalism and the ‘long 60s’
* minimalism and (global) popular music
* minimalist music as cultural practice
* aesthetics/listening/analysis of minimalist music

Contributions are welcomed in the form of individual papers (20 minutes), themed sessions of 3-4 papers, lecture-recitals (30 minutes), and workshops.

Please send abstracts of 250 words to:

Please include your name and institutional affiliation, if any. For themed sessions, please submit all abstracts together with a brief description of your session’s theme. For lecture-recitals and workshops, please contact the organizing committee at before submitting your proposal to discuss your plans informally.
