Conference day 1

After the first day of our conference ‘Popular music: theory and practice in the Lowlands’, we are very happy to see our organizational efforts have paid off. It was well attended, the presentations were wonderful, and tomorrow we expect the double amount of attendees.

A few highlights include the presentation of the POPID project, which explores popular music heritage, cultural memory, and cultural identity in four different European countries. Furthermore, Stan Rijven explained how yesterday’s seawaves turned into today’s airwaves. Other topics on the first day included Zulu music, Finnish heavy metal, Christian rock and a different take on analysis to understand the connections between music and cultural practices.

For the IASPM Benelux Board, the first day was already a big success, and we are looking forward to see you again tomorrow.
