Fourth International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation

Montréal – May 24-26, 2018


The first three TENOR conferences (2015 Paris, 2016 Cambridge, 2017 A Coruña) have established the growing relevance of emergent technologies of notation and representation for a wide range of musical practices: composers, performers, theoreticians, performance researchers, historians, ethnomusicologists, archivists etc.

The term “Technologies of Notation and Representation” encompasses the two principal modes of approaching performing arts by way of another medium: in order to either provide performers with a set of references or instructions that guide their performance (notation); or in order to de-ephemeralize (mostly: visualize) performance praxis for offline analysis or archiving (representation).
