CALL FOR PAPERS and WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Leeds International Songwriting Conference 2012:

Thursday & Friday 8th- 9th March 2012
The inaugural Leeds International Songwriting Conference (LISC) takes place
at Leeds College of Music from Thursday 8th to Friday 9th March 2012. LISC
is an annual event focusing on songwriting practice including research
addressing education and approaches to composition and arranging. The
conference will offer a unique forum for musicians, academics, educators,
students and music industry stakeholders to engage with the latest
developments and practices in songwriting. Along with paper presentations,
workshops, performances and panel discussions, there are opportunities for
networking, information exchange, and professional development. LISC 2012
focuses on both music industry perspectives and pedagogy. In keeping with
these themes, the Postgraduate Studies and Research Centre is please to
announce the following keynote and participants.
 
Keynote Speaker: Jeremy Lascelles
Jeremy¹s career in the music industry began in the early 1970¹s as a
percussionist in the prog-rock outfit The Global Village Trucking Company.
After a spell as a tour promoter, he joined Virgin Records as an A&R
manager, spending 13 years at the label in a variety of marketing and MD
roles. In 1994, Jeremy joined Chrysalis as Managing Director of Chrysalis
Music in the UK and during the next 17 years he oversaw a period of
phenomenal growth and development that saw the company become the leading UK
music publisher. As Chief Executive of the Music Division and later CEO of
Chrysalis PLC, he signed and/or oversaw the signings of some of the world¹s
biggest acts including Portishead, David Gray, OutKast, Ray LaMontaigne,
Pendulum, Cee-Lo Green, Laura Marling, Bon Iver and Fleet Foxes. Jeremy was
elected to the council of the BPI in 2003 and from 2004-2007 he served on
the board of AIM as Vice-Chairman. He was shortlisted for the prestigious
Orange Business Leader of the Year award in 2010.

Call for Papers and Workshop Proposals
 
The conference committee invites proposals for lecture-recitals, workshops,
panels, roundtable discussions and practice-led research papers. We welcome
presentations that advance the field of our understanding of songwriting
from industry perspectives, pedagogical positions and the emergence of
cross-disciplinary thinking. While we invite proposals on any area of
songwriting, preference will be given to topics which accord with the
conference themes, and may address:
 
Industry perspectives:
·      Sync Licensing
·      Downloads

Pedagogical theory:
·       Pedagogical philosophy and positions
·       Approaches to teaching songwriting in Further and Higher Education
·       Curriculum design
 
Performance perspectives:
·       Understanding and writing for the voice
·       Song Production
 
Individual presentations should be no more than twenty minutes in duration.
There may be opportunities for longer slots for lecture-recitals and
workshops. Proposals should take the form of a title followed by an abstract
of not more than 200 words, and should include details of each presenter(s)
including brief biographical description. The deadline for submissions is
