Event description:

Since the 1980s, composers of Chinese ethnic backgrounds have received increasing attention in both scholarship and the international music circuit; much of the focus has been on their attempts to mediate between Chinese and Western idioms, as well as the relationship between contemporary art and Chinese cultural identity against the backdrop of present-day globalization and trans-nationalism. With the theme of “Retrospect and Prospect: Chinese Composers in the Age of Globalization,” proposals are invited on, but not restricted to the following: • Globalization versus cultural identity • New compositional approaches amongst Chinese composers • Interaction between Chinese composers/musicians of different regions • Dissemination of works by Chinese composers in the Digital Age • Trends in commissioning Chinese composers by major ensembles/festivals/events • Major genres and their compositional attributes • Regional themes and styles as compositional impetuses
