The Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group is a discursive space for scholars of 20th- and 21st-century art music, broadly construed. Through its annual meetings and online communications, the group aims to strengthen, support, and develop its members’ ideas and sense of community. It also seeks to bring attention to and foster scholarship on post-1945 music.
Thank you so much to those who weighed in on this. Based on this small sample, it seems like we’re split between those who would like to shut the group down and those who would like to keep the group going as a space for sharing research.
I tend to lean toward Amy’s position… I avoid posting on Facebook in general, and am not…[Read more]
As long as all the official business of the the Post-1945 Group takes place on HC Commons, I really don’t see any harm in keeping the FB Group. (And I don’t find approving new members particularly burdensome.) In fact, I would say: if the post-1945 group only sees itself as focused on SMT exclusive business, it has somewhat lost sight…[Read more]
Even if the new members aren’t in academic music theory, it might be nice to keep the platform as a way of just having our research have a bit wider of a reach. That way our research might be read by a few more people.
Of course, there’s a risk of a heavy moderation burden if the group ever stops being quiet. My suggestion would be to…[Read more]
I am also not on FB any longer, so our decision doesn’t impact me at all, but I think HC is a much more appropriate venue for professional discussions and sharing information about relevant events.
As someone who still receives FB requests for the group, I can attest to this issue. And to second Amy’s gratitude, thanks Tara and Laura, for reaching out to us. My proposed solution is as follows: yes, dissolve the FB group (with proper notification to members of it); but when events are to be publicized (CFPs, sessions, etc.), have…[Read more]
Those who know me well know that I am militantly anti-Facebook. I know that many academics and musicians have determined that they need a facebook profile (there are of course personal reasons as well), but I feel that the fascist and racist policies Z has pursued the past two years are at odds with our institutional values (only one of…[Read more]
As some of you know, our interest group currently maintains a group page on Facebook. The initial idea behind this page was that it would be open to anyone (as long as the Facebook account appeared legitimate), since individuals outside the SMT orbit might still want to engage in productive dialogue about music analysis with us.…[Read more]
Apparently IRCAM has put my Grisey Vortex Temporum 20-minute multimedia lecture on YouTube ( https://youtu.be/qLICBP9FczQ ) along with a whole bunch of others, such as Julian Anderson’s, from the same Spectralism conference, and longer lectures by composers such as James Dillon, Kaija Saariaho, Beat Furrer, George Lewis, Rebecca Saunders, Chaya C…[Read more]

Antares Boyle started the topic Mediating the Cold War: deadline extended to this Friday in the discussion SMT Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group on Humanities Commons 7 months ago
The deadline to submit a proposal for our special joint session, “Mediating the Cold War,” has been extended to this Friday, Feb. 28 (11:59pm Pacific). Please see our website for the full CFP:
hi. very interesting all the ideas. I have two ideas for the name of the award:
* exploring post 1945
* in search of post 1945
they are generic names. however, they can open up ideas for other names. More elaborate.
This sounds like a great idea! Here are my thoughts:
- Jan. 2018-Dec. 2019 sounds great for the first date range
- Agreed–articles and book chapters only.
- Not sure. Maybe something with “20th and 21st repertoire”?
Dear IG members:
Our post-meeting survey showed significant interest in setting up an award for scholarship in our area. Several members have offered to serve on the committee for the first award, which we hope to be able to offer this year. We’d like to solicit feedback from the group on the details of the award parameters for this first year.…[Read more]
Hi Leandro, as a starting place we are hoping to use HC to post our group announcements and potentially share files. It could also be a place for online discussion if that develops! That may be more likely once we have more people. I’ll be sending out another reminder to folks in our old Google group that this is our new platform.
