The International Academic and Artistic Conference Pierre Boulez – the New Music Demiurge


23–24 September 2017

The Fry­deryk Chopin Uni­ver­si­ty of Music in War­saw invites all to par­tic­i­pate in the aca­d­e­m­ic and artis­tic con­fer­ence enti­tled Pierre Boulez – the New Music Demi­urge which will be held on 23–24 Sep­tem­ber 2017.

2016 was the year when one of the most promi­nent musi­cians of our times, the metaphor­i­cal ‘New Music Demi­urge’ – Pierre Boulez, passed away. It is thus an occa­sion to have a clos­er look at his mul­ti-dimen­sion­al activ­i­ty from the stand­point of his out­put as a com­pos­er, con­duc­tor, colum­nist, teacher, head of insti­tu­tion – espe­cial­ly IRCAM – and organ­is­er of cul­tur­al life. The aim of the con­fer­ence is to present his pro­file in numer­ous humane con­texts as well as his achieve­ments her­itage described by con­tem­po­rary schol­ars, musi­cians, com­posers or con­duc­tors.


Appli­ca­tions in an elec­tron­ic form togeth­er with the top­ic of pre­sen­ta­tion, key words, a full affil­i­a­tion and an abstract (500–700 char­ac­ters) in Pol­ish or/and Eng­lish should be sent on the includ­ed con­fer­ence appli­ca­tion form before the dead­line of 31 August 2017 to the fol­low­ing address:

A reviewed book pub­li­ca­tion in a form of a mul­ti-author mono­graph is planned. It will include papers pre­sent­ed dur­ing the con­fer­ence. There­fore, we kind­ly ask you to send an elec­tron­ic ver­sion of your texts for print­ing until 23 Sep­tem­ber 2017.
