Graduate Colloquium Series: Dana Rappoport, Ethnomusicologist, Le Centre national de la recherche scientifique (CNRS) Paris, France

Music was shaped to be part of that cycle.

Fri Nov 22
Graduate Colloquium Series - Richard Kurth, Professor of Music Theory, UBC School of Music Talk:
"Musical Imagination and Performed Listening: Opportunities for Music Theory and Analysis of Performance"
Taking its perspective from points of tension between the concerns of music theory, cognitive science, and philosophical aesthetics, this talk outlines a heterodox conceptual basis for thinking about music cognition and musical imagination. Central to the argument is a specific kind of imaginative listening, experienced by music professionals and enthusiasts alike, which involves mental representations of actual sounds and imagined sounds interacting in real time.
3:30 pm, Room 400B, UBC Music Building
