Music conferences!!

I’m so excited to announce that I’ll be presenting an accepted paper called “Lookin’ for a sound that’s gonna drown out the world”: Resolving musical emotional ambiguity in U2’s POPVision” at the U2 Conference (U2CON 2018). It’s taking place from 13-15 June in Belfast. Follow @U2Conference for conference updates.

This past weekend, I presented an invited talk, “Searching for the right feelings: emotional metadata in music” at the Annual Study Weekend of the International Association for The UK & Ireland Branch of the International Association of Music Libraries, Archives and Documentation Centres. They live tweeted the conference, including my talk, at @IAML_UK_IRL. I had a fabulous time. My favourite talk was about the history of written music for the Highland Bagpipes and its associated bibliographic control. Also, the conference offered us tours of special music collections at the National Library of Scotland and the University of Edinburgh’s Centre for Research Collections, as well as the amazing musical instrument museum at St Cecilia’s Hall. Here are a couple of photos I took on the tours:



Now, if you’ll excuse me, there is music information research to be done…
