Appel de conférences – « Low End Theories. Bass Culture, Sound Systems, and Popular Music » – 10 février 2023

Appel de conférences pour le colloque « Low End Theories. Bass Culture, Sound Systems, and Popular Music », en ligne, 19-20 mai 2023.

« Key publications from the last two decades explore a range of other topics an interdisciplinary fashion, including: the foundational artists, principles, and sounds of Jamaican dub;[2] sonic materialism and sonic epistemologies;[3] the development of local sound system cultures & music scenes globally;[4] ‘the drop’ as a musical and cultural phenomenon;[5] the development of bass culture alongside ‘treble culture’;[6] a call to develop a ‘musicology of bass culture’;[7] and more.

This free online conference responds to this developing field by bringing together researchers from across music studies and the wider arts & humanities for talks and discussion. With its name inspired by the sonics and multiple meanings of A Tribe Called Quest’s 1991 album The Low End Theory, the conference aims to generate thoughtful debate about low-end sonic cultures, ideas, and practices with sensitivity to their social and political histories. »
