On June 25 and 26, 2021, the “XIII International Symposium – Music Creation in Soundtracks / La creación musical en la banda Sonora”, which for almost two decades has been the reference forum for the study of music in audiovisual media in Spain, will be held in virtual format.
Since 2002, when this meeting began, the study of audiovisual music has experienced an evident growth and has become a booming discipline, of obvious interest for musicology, and also for film studies, audiovisual communication, cultural studies or video games.
The symposium will include traditional topics such as the creation and analysis of film music, in Spain and abroad, and the different methods of approaching this repertoire. The music present in the audiovisual environment will be addressed, both the sound creation of television series, commercials, and video clips, as well as the growing environment offered by the Internet or the world of video games.
The symposium is organized by the: Comisión de Música y Lenguajes Audiovisuales (MYLA) de la SEdeM, Universidad de Oviedo – Facultad de Filosofía y Letras, Dpto. Historia del Arte y Musicología, Fundación Universidad de Oviedo.
