From 2 to 4 November 2022, a symposium will be held in Geneva on the theme of the Epic, focusing more specifically on the role of music in its interpretation. Based on an idea of the Ateliers d’ethnomusicologie (ADEM), in collaboration with the Haute Ecole de Musique de Genève (HEM) and with the contribution of the Séminaire nomade de la Société Française d’Ethnomusicologie (SFE), it will be held within the framework of the festival Les nuits du monde (ADEM), which is based on the same theme. The primary motivation of this vast project is to connect live performance, educational activities, scientific research and publication. A selection of the contributions to the colloquium will subsequently be published as a dossier in the Cahiers d’ethnomusicologie (Vol. 37/2024). Artists, researchers and students of music or (ethno)musicology interested in participating in the colloquium are invited to submit their proposals before 15 January 2022.
