13:00 - SEMINAR - Kisspeptin, Fertility and Fatness : School of Anatomy, Physiology & Human Biology Seminar Series More Information
The Seminar: Jeremy’s work represents an exciting new field of neuroendocrinology. The recent discovery of mice and humans lacking the kisspeptin receptor (Kiss1R) and their subsequent infertility has sparked scientists to explore the actions of kisspeptin. Kisspeptin is a neuropeptide and regulates reproduction by signalling directly to GnRH neurons. In addition to being expressed in GnRH neurons, Kiss1R is also expressed in other brain areas, suggesting that kisspeptin may have additional functions outside of governing reproduction. New research has now uncovered that this peptide plays an equally exciting role in the control of adiposity.

The Speaker: Jeremy Smith began his research career at The University of Western Australia, where he completed his PhD with Distinction in 2004. In 2003, Jeremy was awarded a NICHD Fellowship (US) and began post-doctoral research at the University of Washington. Here, Jeremy worked extensively on kisspeptin, a novel neuropeptide, vital in the neuroendocrine control of GnRH secretion and reproductive function. In 2006, Dr Smith was awarded a NHMRC Biomedical Fellowship and returned to Australia to work at the Department of Physiology, Monash University. Jeremy has now returned to UWA and the School of Anatomy, Physiology and Human Biology to continue his work and is funded by the NHMRC, ARC and is a recipient of an ARC Future Fellowship.

17:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: Research Seminar Series - Alexander Jensen Website | More Information
Alexander Jensen: Different ways of dealing with death: the relation between music and theology.

Different ways of dealing with death: the relation between music and theology Western music has always been a way of expressing that what is most important to men and women. In the past, this has been (and for many people still is) religious faith. This paper explores the relation between music and religion as well as the importance of theology for the interpretation of musical works. We will look at two pieces dealing with death, namely Bach’s Actus tragicus (BWV 106) and Brahm’s Ein deutsches Requiem, as case studies for the ways in which different theologies can be expressed in music.

18:30 - PUBLIC LECTURE - School of Music presents: DMA Lecture Recital - Georg Corall: The Eloquent Hautboy Website | More Information
Georg Corall: DMA Lecture-Recital

The Eloquent Hautboy

Scholars have investigated ‘music as speech’ and the ‘weapons of rhetoric’ in musical execution in order to understand the importance of text in historically-informed performance practice (HIP). This has led to the current vocal practice of declamation in, for example, the cantatas of Johann Sebastian Bach, who communicated his emotional messages to the congregation in part through the careful selection of a suitable instrumental soundscape. His contemporary Johann Mattheson (1681-1764) referred to the oboe as ‘der gleichsam redende Hautbois’ (the eloquent hautboy) and reckoned it to be one of the instruments that most closely resembles the human voice. The investigation of contemporary treatises that provide commentary on articulation and rhetoric, as well as documents dealing with the balance of the forces available for Bach’s own performances, allows conclusions to be drawn on sound balance and transparency in the performance of Early Music on period instruments; however, it appears that many present-day habits in HIP may not withstand scrutiny. Currently, much attention is given to the close focus on articulation and text delivery required by historically-informed singers, whereas Early Music instrumentalists are deemed to merely support the vocalist’s words. Decades of personal experience in aiming to reconstruct historical hautboy reeds, together with a thorough analysis of wind instrument treatises dating from the 17th and 18th centuries, reveals that ‘articulation’ referred to the attack of notes as means to imitate text rather than merely defining the beginning and ending of a ‘vocal’ sound on an instrument.
