“*International Association for the Study of Popular Music (Australia-New
Zealand Branch) Conference, 2014*

*Conference Title:* Into the Mix: People, Places, Processes

*Conference Dates:* 5-7 December 2014

*Venue:* St David Theatre Complex, corner of St David and Cumberland
Streets, University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand

The theme of this year’s conference is “Into the Mix”. The “mix” is both
literal (referring to various stages in the production of popular music,
as well as important creative processes such as sampling, remixing and
DJing) and an analogy for all types of musical hybridities and
encounters, the fluid nature of musical meanings and musical
experiences, and the fluidity or movement of ideas, sounds and peoples.
The notion of the “mix” is defined broadly; it might involve popular
music production processes, a creative setting, or another space where
people, places and processes are foregrounded as part of an interpretive
cultural analysis. Contributions might be case-study analyses
underpinned by historical, ethnographic or critical enquiry, or focused
entirely on theoretical orientations addressing music production, as
well as hybridity and related topics.

Papers will be considered that address specifically the theme of the
conference in connection with one or more of its broad definitions.
Questions and themes paper presenters may wish to address include, but
are not limited to:

* How are mixes interpreted and valued by different people(s) in
different places?

* Which processes (creative, social, economic etc) are involved in
creating mixes?

* What aesthetics underpin the production of mixes or cross-cultural
musical collaborations?

* What are some of the cultural, social, political and/or economic
effects of mixes?

* How are people(s), places and processes represented through the mix?

* How do movement, process and encounter influence popular music production?

* How does mixing enable and/or reflect fluidity, hybridity or eclecticism?

* How might cultural space(s) or place(s) be maintained or
(re)constructed in the musical mix?

*Keynote Speaker:* Roy Shuker.
