Introduction to EMS10 decorative dots

“The EMS Network has been organised to fill an important gap in terms of electroacoustic music, namely focusing on the better understanding of the various manifestations of electroacoustic music. Areas related to the study of electroacoustic music range from the musicological to more interdisciplinary approaches, from studies concerning the impact of technology on musical creativity to the investigation of the ubiquitous nature of electroacoustic sounds today. The choice of the word, ‘network’ is of fundamental importance as one of our goals is to make relevant initiatives more widely available.” (

The EMS conference is organised yearly through the initiative of the Electroacoustic Music Studies Network, an international team which aims to encourage reflection on the better understanding of electroacoustic music and its genesis, its appearance and its development over the span of a century. The organisers are all engaged in the key areas of debate and actively seeking the development of solutions.

Thanks to a collaboration with ISAST (International Society for the Arts, Sciences and technology) and OLATS (Observatoire Leonardo des Arts et Technosciences), a Leonardo-EMS prize will be given to a selected communication of a young researcher for publication of his/her paper in Leonardo (MIT Press).

The 7th Conference will commence in the afternoon of Monday 21nd of June with the registration, a round table and a presentation by the keynote speaker. Additional events will be announced later.
