Music Analysis and the Body: Workshop
Chair: Michael Klein

16.30     All (including other delegates attending session)

This workshop will explore key topics arising from the papers, with participation from the speakers but open to any other interested delegates. Join us to explore questions highlighted in the previous discussions, and a range of further issues arising from analytical, theoretical and critical engagements with music and the body in a range of repertoires. Once questions have been identified and grouped together, 'break out' groups will discuss and debate them; at the end of the session, those groups will then report back to the full cohort of the session, identifying nascent answers and, most crucially, vital pathways for research in the wake of the session.
