Call for Papers: International Conference “Tracking the Creative Process in Music”

International Conference, 5th edition
Lisbon, Portugal
October 9 to 11th, 2019

The TCPM international conference brings together researchers interested in artistic creativity and the study of processes of musical and sound creation, of the past and present. Researchers working on this cluster of problems from a wide variety of disciplines (history, music analysis, psychology, philosophy, cognitive science, sociology, ethnomusicology, anthropology, etc.) are invited to assess the different methodologies developed in the last thirty years in their respective areas from an interdisciplinary perspective.
