Music and Numbers 

An international conference hosted by the Department of Music Canterbury 
Christ Church University 

14 - 15 May 2010 

A conference on 'Music and Numbers', in association with Sounds New and the 
Institute of Musical Research (IMR), will be hosted by the Department of Music 
of Canterbury Christ Church University (CCCU), on Friday and Saturday, 14-15 
May 2010. 

The conference will coincide with and augment the long-established Sounds 
New Music Festival, which is closely affiliated with CCCU. The 2010 festival (7-
16 May) focuses on the number seven (7). Ensemble Intercontemporain, 
Cantus Ansambl, the London Sinfonietta, and the City of Birmingham 
Symphony Orchestra Chamber Players are only a few of the many ensembles 
and artists who will feature in the festival, while composers and film-makers 
will also participate and introduce their work. 

Building on the festival theme, the conference will provide an overview of the 
latest scholarly work on music, proportion and numbers in composition, and 
aims to bring together scholars, composers and performers with interests in 
this area. 

Proposals are invited on topics that address specific compositional and/or 
analytical aspects of repertoires and genres, or the work of individual 
composers. Possible themes might include, but are not limited to: the use of 
numbers in compositional theory and practice in the Western classical 
tradition; proportion and cryptographic techniques; the Fibonacci series and 
magic squares; other numerical calculations and constructs, particularly those 
used in compositions of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, such as the 
use of numbers in algorithmic composition; the intersections of music and 
mysticism - in as much as these relate to composition with numbers - from 
Pythagoras to the present day. Proposals from composers and sonic artists 
demonstrating how working with numbers underpins their own creative 
strategies will be particularly welcome. 

The conference key-note speakers are Professor Douglas Jarman (Emeritus 
Professor, Royal Northern College of Music), Dr Ruth Tatlow (Associate 
Professor, Stockholm University), and Roy Howat (Keyboard Research Fellow, 
Royal Academy of Music). 

Potential contributors are invited to submit abstracts for:

 i) individual papers (20 minutes, plus 10 minutes question time) 

ii) panel sessions (1 hour, with no more than four papers, including question 
time) 

Abstracts should address the conference theme and state the aims and 
methodological approach of the proposed paper(s). Abstracts, which will be 
published both electronically and in the conference programme, should be no 
longer than 300 words for individual papers and up to 1,000 words for panel 
sessions. They should include the following information:

i) title of the paper 

ii) author(s) name(s)

iii) institutional affiliation (if any)

iv) email address (panels: emails for all panel participants) 

v) abstract (for panels: description of the panel and brief abstracts of 
individual papers) 

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is Friday 8 January 2010. 
Successful contributors will be notified via email by late January 2010. 

Abstracts should be submitted via email (preferably as plain text - only 
attachments in .rtf format will be accepted) to the conference organiser, Dr. 
Eva Mantzourani at: [log in to unmask]

Postal correspondence should be addressed to: Dr. Eva Mantzourani,

1QU, United Kingdom. Further information will appear on the conference
