Call for papers for the NOVA Contemporary Music Meeting International Conference, to take place in from 3 to 5 May 2023, under the subject main subject Listening to today’s music.

Within a performative perspective, today we encounter more and more new listening situations. Actively participating in music events and multisensory performances, audiences and performers are today more and more engaged with innovative auditory experiences which can be multimodal, virtual and immersive. How do listening modalities make an impact on the appreciation of a musical piece? How much is the listening process affected, or otherwise constrained, by the listening context? What is the role of music listening in a museum exhibition, a sound installation, or sound art event? What is the purpose and the potential of listening to music in public/open spaces? It is within the context of this complex problem that we encourage composers, musicologists, performers, teachers, philosophers and other researchers to present proposals covering the whole range of questions involved in this subject. Students, post-doctoral, and early-career researchers are particularly encouraged.
