Midlands New Music Symposium [online]

5-6 December 2020

Keynote: Simon Emmerson

Welcome to the main page for the inaugural Midlands New Music Symposium. The symposium seeks to explore and celebrate the diversity of current contemporary music and sound practices in the fields of composition, performance, and technology.

The 2020 symposium themes were open to let practitioners and scholars set the agenda. As such, the committee selected a broad range of proposals from individuals in and outside of academia. The two-day online symposium saw a combination of pre-recorded presentations, lecture recitals, discussions, and concerts interjected with live streamed Q&A sessions and Roadtable. These have been archived and can be viewed below.
