A conversation space for scholars throughout the humanities and sciences, to share and exchange different ways of talking about and engaging with music

How do we talk about music and sound? What is the language that we use to describe music? What makes music an interesting object of inquiry? Each discipline brings with it new approaches and methodologies for answering these questions. Come and join a day of interdisciplinary conversation exploring music and its many languages.
