The Mexican Centre for Music and Sonic Arts (CMMAS) has great pleasure in announcing the new call for materials for its new issue of Sonic Ideas/Ideas Sónicas publication. This publication both printed and on-line is devoted to Electro-Acoustic Music and Sonic Arts. The main objective is to encourage, develop, and promote information about activities in the area, as well as stimulating interaction between English and Spanish speaking composers, performers, researchers and audience.
It is open to every aesthetic point of view; within or outside the academic area. It is aimed to draw attention into disseminating new and challenging perspectives. Serious research and discussion on these subjects will be promoted to approach technology and explore its influence in music and sonic arts.
The new issue of Sonic Ideas/Ideas Sónicas will gather items related to the future of music seen from a perspective pertaining to the philosophy of science, sociology, ethnomusicology, the new technologies and their relationship with the social context. We aim to offer for the remaining of the XXI Century, a multi-disciplinary outlook about the social role in music and art.
