17:00 - SEMINAR - UWA Music presents: Callaway Centre Seminar Series | Prof. Julie Brown : Multiplying Musicians, Singing Note Heads, Mysterious Gramophones More Information
A free weekly seminar series, with presenters from within UWA and from the wider community.

Early cinema generated a small but distinct body of music-themed “trick films” featuring imaginative visualizations of music, sound and listening. Exponents of the “trick film” genre such as Georges Méličs and Segundo de Chomón clearly saw the potential for moving pictures to facilitate both visual and audio-visual tricks, notwithstanding the medium’s material silence. For Shiela J. Nayar, the prominent visualization of music and voices in early cinema points to an oral episteme of visual story-telling, the norms of which weighed heavily on ‘celluloid story-telling’. While this may be true, I argue in this paper that the ubiquity of musical and vocal themes in early films equally reflects film-makers’ intrigue not only with the close aesthetic relationship between music and image, but also with the creative and comic potential of the new technological media – visually present but silent, or sonically present but without visual source. With “silent” scenarios involving new audio technologies, there was a double incongruity, double the possibility for play – and perhaps, double the pleasure.

By considering a number of early trick films that engage with what we might call the mysterious properties of music and sound – visual conceptions of music’s ontology, music’s almost magical power to move its listeners, and the marvels and problems associated with new audio technologies – this paper draws on André Gaudreault’s concept of ‘trickality’ to argue that these films encourage us to engage with the ‘trickality’ of listening with images.

9:00 - WORKSHOP - Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group (PMRG) Conference Masterclass : Join us for our free inaugural PMRG conference masterclass! Website | More Information
The Perth Medieval and Renaissance Group (PMRG) was founded in 1981, and welcomes all who have an interest in the culture, life and history of medieval and early modern Europe. PMRG offers a forum to showcase local, national and international scholarship in the field by hosting seminar papers and presentations by local and visiting scholars throughout the year. The highlight of the year is the annual conference, attracting scholars of all stages from around the world to present their research. Themes in previous years have included such diverse areas as magic and marvels, houses, households and families and the world as stage.

For a while now PMRG have been discussing how to create more support for undergraduate students who are interested in progressing into postgraduate studies and/or working in the academy, and for those already in postgraduate study. In response, we have developed a Conference/Abstract Masterclass to work in tandem with the Study Smarter Conference Workshop, and will essentially assist students with such things as crafting an abstract, sourcing CFPs, joining professional memberships, public speaking skills, and general conference information (such as what to wear, how to network and how to follow up on connections you’ve made once the conference in question is over). What makes PMRG’s Masterclass unique is the opportunity for students to: a) Present your abstract on the day, as though it were an actual paper being presented at a real conference. b) Experience receiving questions during the question time following your paper (and also how to ask them!) and, c) Have the unique opportunity to submit your abstract to the CFP for PMRG’s annual conference in October of this year, with a view that all students whose abstracts are within the realm of our conference’s topic, and who have attended our Masterclass, will be accepted to present. You will also then receive guidance on writing their paper between CFP acceptance and the conference itself.

The PMRG Masterclass will be held on Friday 5th April 2019, and will run from 9:00am to 1:00pm. The conference itself will be on Saturday 19th October, 2019, and will run for a full day. The theme for the conference is “Mental Health in the Medieval and Early Modern Worlds”, so we recommend thinking about something within this topic when you prepare your idea for your abstract.

We are incredibly excited about this new program, and hope you will think about coming along! We’ll be visiting your class to talk more about this opportunity next week, so feel free to ask us any questions then, or you can contact me for more information at [email protected]
