Electroacoustic music meta-bibliography

The meta-bibliography is available again, in a thoroughly revised and updated version.

(The EAM meta-bibliography is a bibliography of electroacoustic music bibliographies. It is a spin-off from my master’s thesis in library and information science, and covers websites, books and journal articles that list items of interest to EAM composers and researchers.)

New journal: JAR – The journal for artistic research

The journal for artistic research (JAR) is an international, online, Open Access and peer-reviewed journal for the identification, publication and dissemination of artistic research and its methodologies, from all arts disciplines. The Journal is underpinned by the Research Catalogue (RC), a searchable, documentary database of artistic research work and its exposition, that functions as an inclusive, open-ended, bottom-up research tool supporting the development of the Journal’s academic contributions.”

Issue #0 presents work by:

  • Bertha Bermudez, Scott deLahunta, Marijke Hoogenboom, Chris Ziegler, Frederic Bevilacqua, Sarah Fdili Alaoui, Barbara Meneses Gutierrez, Amsterdam
  • Richard Blythe, Melbourne
  • Sher Doruff, Amsterdam
  • Cathy van Eck, Zürich
  • Mark Fleischman, Cape Town
  • Abhishek Hazra, Bangalore
  • Anders Hultqvist, Gothenburg
  • Daniel Kötter, Constanze Fischbeck, Berlin
  • Tuija Kokkonen, Helsinki
  • Elina Saloranta, Helsinki
  • Sissel Tolaas, Berlin
  • Otto von Busch, Gothenburg

JAR is published by the Society for Artistic Research (SAR). “[SAR] was established in March 2010 as an independent, non-profit organisation for the purpose of publishing JAR.” SAR:s institutional members are art and design schools and universities.

The journal invites submissions. JAR is peer-reviewed, but not the RC.

The journal of music and meaning revamped

In the new issue, no. 9, of The journal of music and meaning, the editors announce that the journal will be published in blog format from now on. Entire issues will not be published at the same time. Instead, papers will appear in the blog when ready. The posts consists of and abstract, the author’s credentials, and a link to the paper in PDF. This is good news, although I find the new format somewhat confusing, perhaps because the new issue lacks a table of contents.

JMM #9 contains some articles of particular interest to readers of this blog:
