The opening session of the conference will include illustrated conversations on performance and research, drawing on the digital recording of music and speech from the CHARM archive and on filmed extracts of a theatrical and musical performance of Lads in their Hundreds. The topic of the opening keynote by Chuck Henry, which will immediately follow, will offer reflections on this, under the title: To Hold up a Mirror: Preservation and interpretation of performance in a digital age.
Note: Preceding the opening of the conference of Wed 7 July are two associated events which pick up the theme of 'performance and research'. In the morning, a half-day colloquium on Artistic Research & Experimentation in Digital Media will take place, and in the afternoon the formal launch of the sound files of the AHRC Centre for the History and Analysis of Recorded Music (CHARM). Conference delegates are welcome to attend either or both these events, but registration is required for the colloquium.
