Conference: The dramaturgy of sound in the music of Luigi Nono

I always liked the music of Luigi Nono. I once took a special flight to Switzerland to hear a performance of La lontananza nostalgica utopica futura (1988-89) with Irvine Arditti as violinist.

International Symposium
to be held at the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy
25-27.06.2009
The Archivio Luigi Nono in Venice, in collaboration with the University of Venice is organizing an international symposium on The dramaturgy of sound in the music of Luigi Nono .

In the catalogue of Luigi Nono’s compositions only three works are normally considered as “music for the theater” because, for different reasons, these works can be associated with scenic or visual components: Intolleranza 1960, Al gran sole carico d’amore and Prometeo. Tragedia dell’ascolto. However, deeply ingrained in Nono’s entire ¦uvre, regardless of ensemble or destination, there is the search for an acoustic dramaturgy (in the classical meaning of drâma or drân); an “active” sound the implications of which embrace different dimensions relating as much to the form as to the content of the work. The use of electronic technologies and consequently the possibility of spatialization and transformation of the sound-event in real time have radicalized the dimension of “drama” in Nono’s creative horizon.

The Organization Committee is pleased to invite scholars (musicologists, philosophers, literature and theater historians) to present proposals for papers relating to the following subjects:

1) Dramaturgy of sound and listening space
2) Dramaturgy and sound action
3) Dramaturgy and text
4) Dramaturgy and the stage
5) Compositional process and sound dramaturgy

First priority will be given to proposals based on new archival research.
