8th International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation

Representation and Perception of Music Structure

Monday, May 15 to Wednesday, May 17, 2023

Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Hosted by the Music Department at Northeastern University, the Longy School of Music of Bard College, and the New England Conservatory.

A primary theme of TENOR BOSTON 2023 will be Representation and Perception of Music Structure. We invite scholars, artists, and music practitioners to submit work related to Western and non-Western musical traditions. In addition to systems that embody graphical musical representation, we also seek systems that use technologies for non-visual methods of music representation.

TENOR BOSTON 2023, the 8th International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation will take place from Monday, May 15 to Wednesday, May 17, 2023, in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and will be hosted by the Music Department at Northeastern University, the Longy School of Music of Bard College, and the New England Conservatory. TENOR BOSTON 2023 will take place in a hybrid format (i.e., both in-person and remote).

Keynote Speakers

We are excited to announce that we have confirmed keynote speaker Dr. Morwaread M. Farbood whose research encompasses how listeners perceive musical structures in real-time and computer music applications; including the Graphical Score Interface (GSI) software environment that facilitates music composition by providing users with graphical tools for visualizing, manipulating and generating high-level musical structures.
