Forwarded Workshop Info:

An all-day workshop sponsored by the Academic Book of the Future project.


Goldsmiths, University of London.

Ian Gulland Lecture Theatre, Whitehead Building. #34 on this map http://www.gold.ac.uk/campus-map/.

10:30 – 18:00, Monday 11 April 2016.


Music publishing and writing about music have always pushed at the boundaries of publishing technology. And the dissemination of music documents often challenges our notions of authorial ownership. As digital technology increasingly dominates the production and dissemination of scholarly content, including original writing, critical editions, and creative practice, how will music research rise to the challenges it poses?

This one day event forms part of the Academic Book of the Future project and aims to explore how digital production and dissemination will impact on music publishing and scholarship in the coming years. Topics covered will include: what will be the best practice for encoding, dissemination, and preservation of music notation? How will online collaboration affect the production and ownership of digital music editions? How can the narrative structures and arguments of scholarly discourse and of music editions be preserved in a context of ‘random access’ (from search engines, etc.)? Should scholars and artists publish their work (writing, editions, compositions) as Open Access, and should they carry out their drafting processes in public, making early editions and edit histories available online?



Attendance is free (including refreshments, lunch and a wine reception). However places are limited so please book in advance using Eventbrite:
