The International Society for Orthodox Church Music (ISOCM): Prague, Czech Republic @ Charles University  | Prague | Prague | Czech Republic
International Conference for Orthodox Music  is pleased to announce the upcoming conference to be held in Prague. The Conference Theme The idea of a Byzantine ars nova has existed for some time as a description of the elaborate repertories of kalophonic chant, on the analogy of the western mediaeval “new art”. It is also useful, however, as a term to include other kinds of “new art” in the field of Orthodox church music. This conference aims to explore the idea of innovation in Orthodox chant, from the Byzantine period to compositions written today; topics include, but are not limited to, the way in which innovation can be reconciled with tradition, analysis of the reception of different kinds of innovative repertories, correspondences and contrasts between Eastern and Western techniques of chant composition, and discussion of the means and techniques by which an “ars nova” might be implemented.
