In collaboration with the Università di Pavia – Dipartimento di Musicologia e Beni Culturali, the Kieler Gesellschaft für Filmmusikforschung invites for a symposium of how sound design, film music and music editing in general exert a primary function in conveying senses of space and place in audiovisual media.
Together we will explore how strategies for connoting space and place in film sound and music vary with cinematic practices across history and according to transnational patterns of negotiation between global and local modes of production. The focus is also set on mutually embodied insights into specific socio-historical contexts and the documentation of human geographies.
The conference aims to bring together scholars interested in mapping geographies of music and sound practices in audiovisual media (e.g. film, television, video games, interactive art). Cultural, ethnographic, historical, analytical, data-driven and aesthetic approaches are welcome, as well as research on industrial and commercial practices.
