Working Session: Sounds of the Pacific
Saturday, February 3. 9:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m., Versailles C
The Sounds of the Pacific session will continue as a Working Session in 2018. In 2017, more than a dozen people gathered to discuss various aspects of sound and music in the contemporary Pacific, including: musical responses to change, cultural crisis, and climate change; sound and place; change and church; sound/music and various levels of identity (ethnic, religions, etc.). In 2018, we will pre-circulate papers (which will be due to the organizers by Jan 15), and each participant will offer in-depth comments on 1-2 other submissions. Needless to say, we would be delighted to welcome newcomers.
Interested participants currently include: Karen Fox, Andie Palmer, Nancy Lutkehaus, Eric Silverman, Maria Lepowski, Albert Refiti, Fraser MacDonald, David Hernandez, Hao-li Lin.
