Sounding Out Indonesian Music conference @ Cornell University

March 30, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Kroncong by Rumput, plus music composed and improvised by Andrew Timar, CAGE, and Szkieve.

The Cornell Modern Indonesia Project brings together some forty participants from the US, Canada, and Indonesia, to sound out the state of Indonesian music, both as a subject of scholarly inquiry, and as an artistic practice pursued within and beyond Indonesia. Those who work primarily as scholars of Indonesian music, mostly within the field of ethnomusicology, will be joined by others from in, around, and outside academia who work primarily as practitioners: as performers, composers, ensemble directors, and promoters. The mix of paper presentations, roundtables, and performances will build on the overlap and connections between these constituencies, whose priorities and attentions may differ but who fundamentally share a common cause.
