The conference is organized in cooperation with the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali “G.Lettimi”, the Sagra Musicale Malatestiana, and the Municipality of Rimini.

Theme of the conference and Free papers

This year the conference intends to focus scholars’ attention on past and recent dichotomies that have profoundly marked music theory and analysis, often resulting into complex and multifaceted approaches to musicalphenomena. The aim is to promote an in-depth examination on how perspectival dichotomies have been and arebeing articulated by performers, composers, teachers, theorists/analysts, historians, or any other musical operators. Contributions comparing, reconciling, or clashing different approaches with each other, as well as thoseintersecting music theory and analysis with other disciplines, are strongly encouraged.Beyond the general theme, the conference welcomes free proposals on any topic related to music theory andanalysis, with no distinction of musical genres, historical periods, and geographical areas.
