Working Session: Sounds of the Pacific
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. We request that interested parties kindly submit an abstract to the organizers no later than October 15.
