Second Session of the Conference: Teleological Projections in Contemporary Composing Practice

Second Session of the Conference: Teleological Projections in Contemporary Composing Practice

On November 18–20, the 20th International Conference “Principles of Music Composing: Phenomenon of Teleology” will be held to examine compositional issues and study them on a theoretical level.

The conference was not curbed by the unusual conditions of this year, although it was forced to change the nature of its implementation. For the first time, the conference will be organized virtually. This is a great opportunity for an even larger audience unrestricted by any barriers to join!

This year’s theme resonates with a common dilemma of a processive art creator – what transformation of a work takes place in the perspective of a definite time. In other words, towards which goal the material of the work is oriented and what path is chosen before the fulfillment of that goal. Speakers from Lithuania, the USA, the United Kingdom, Canada, Spain, Austria, Serbia, Ukraine and Poland will share their theoretical insights and actively discuss these issues.
