University of Valladolid and Katarina Gurska Foundation

I International Congress: Intersection Art, Society and Technology in Musical Innovation

The University of Valladolid In Spain and the Katarina Gurska Institute for Artistic Research are together to disseminate knowledge related to innovative scientific and artistic research.

With the social use of technology, interconnectivity and instantaneity, we face the challenge of providing musicians with the necessary concepts and mindsets to adapt the development of their professional skills to the current paradigm and to understand and creatively deal with the changes within their respective fields.

Educational institutions have to search for new concepts of knowledge production and redefine their structures to become hybrid models of think tanks and shelters, laboratories and publishers, funders and archivists at the same time and under one roof. Interdisciplinarity is the keyword of the hour but what are the personal and social prerequisites for successful integration of the parties involved in contemporary music teaching, practice, and musical innovation including all its traditions, cultural backgrounds, instrumentalities, and mentalities?

Will these fascinating technologies inspire uniformity or diversity? 

A great opportunity for artists, professionals, teachers, and students of all levels to share their research results related to any of the 4 research lines of the congress:

  1. Artistic Interaction and Technology
  2. Innovation in Music Education
  3. Arts, Science and Technology
  4. Music and Society in the 21st century

25 SPEAKERS with very different backgrounds and research areas.
