Music Theory Midwest

2002 Thirteenth Annual Conference
University of Minnesota
May 17-18, 2002 - Minneapolis, MN

Conference Information

It is a pleasure to invite you to this year's meeting, to be held on the splendid campus of the University of Minnesota, overlooking the Mississipi River. The program committee, chaired by Eleanor Trawick, has selected a wide-ranging program from among a strong group of submissions. Topics include the expressive interpretation of late Romantic music, post-tonal musical languages, the analysis of improvisation, metatheory, drama and narrative, film music, music and environmental spaces, temporality and metrical dissonance, performance issues, motivic processes, and Schenkerian theory. Especially intriguing are the ways in which several papers combine two or more of these topics-a healthy integration of approaches that is as often intradisciplinary as interdisciplinary. The keynote address by Alexandra Pierce models this integration; she will share her career-long investigation into movement research as it has shaped her teaching of embodied analysis and meaningful performance.

Please make your reservations early. Our local arrangements chair, Michael Cherlin, has arranged a gracious reception and banquet, and you may also wish sample the rich cultural offerings in the Twin Cities in mid-May. As this year's president, I look forward to welcoming each of you, meeting those of you I don't already know, and hearing your ideas for future activities of the society.

-Robert Hatten, MTMW President
