Sonic Memory is a one-day IMR conference, Thurs Sept 5th, at the University of Liverpool, with presentations by Prof. Ros Jennings and Prof. Helmi Järviluoma-Mäkelä. The day will call upon researchers from all areas of music studies to share methodological approaches to and understandings of music, listening and memory, including those from sonic studies, music psychology, music ethnography, music therapy, popular music studies, and sociology. In doing so, the symposium has the following three aims:

  • To bring together different ways of thinking about ‘sonic memory’ and develop collaboration between scholars from different areas of music studies.
  • To deepen understanding of the relationship between music, listening and memory.
  • To strengthen the contribution of Musicology to research and debate on topical and pressing issues.
