2021 IASJ Research Conference

Date
Thursday 11 November 2021 - Friday 12 November 2021
Location
All presentations can be followed via Zoom links (see below)
Online from De Nieuwe Energie in Leiden

The IASJ, the International Association of Schools of Jazz is a world-wide network for jazz, jazz education and jazz research. On November 11 and 12 the IASJ will host their 2021 Conference in Leiden. All presentations can be followed via Zoom-links.

This conference is for anyone who takes jazz seriously, who can inform others and wants to be informed by others. Sharing knowledge and experience was at first not common practise in jazz. In the last decades the jazz eco-system has changed. Jazz knowledge has become jazz theory has become jazz research.

The conference is organized by  the IASJ (International Association of Schools of Jazz), ACPA (Academy of Creative and Performing Arts of the University Leiden) and the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague.

Programme

Thursday 11 November 2021

PART 1: 3 PM CET PANEL DISCUSSION: RESEARCH IN JAZZ: POSITIONS, THEORIES, METHODS

Applied jazz research, artistic jazz research, practice-based research, research-in-the-arts, research-through-the-arts: there is no shortage in names, methods and approached in jazz research nor in visions on how theoretical or practical jazz research should be. This panel aims to give a helicopter-view on the landscape of jazz research and aims to insights in how the various approaches can reinforce each another.  

Panelists:

Andrew Bain (RBC),

Kurt Ellenberger (GVSU),

Petter Frost Fadnes (UiS),

Michael Kahr (JMLU/KUG),

Wouter Turkenburg (IASJ).

Moderators:

Kurt Ellenberger, Wouter Turkenburg

PART 2: 5 PM CET: LOST SOUL: THE STATE OF BLACK CULTURAL INFLUENCE IN COLLEGIATE JAZZ PEDAGOGY

There are certain problems that arise when teaching jazz, an ethnically-derived art, in the academies, conservatories and universities that are designed specifically to teach European classical music. What is lost in the transition from jazz teaching-in-the-street to jazz-teaching-in-academia? How can jazz research help to find the answers?

Presenter:

Damani Philips, Associate Professor of Jazz, African American Studies, University of Iowa

PART 3: 7 PM CET: JAZZ RESEARCH IN THE IASJ: WHAT HAS BEEN RESEARCHED, WHAT IS RESEARCHED NOW, WHAT SHOULD BE RESEARCHED NEXT.

'Rhythm Changes' is the name of the journal published by the IASJ in the 1990's. Editor Graham Collier collected articles and conducted interviews on a wide range of topics that  were as 'hot' than as they are today. Many of these topics were and are discussed at the 'Ongoing Dialogues' the jazz forum during IASJ Jazz Meetings. A large number of IASJ member schools have developed jazz research programs, continuing the research that started three decades ago.

Presenters: 

Ricardo Pinheiro: Jazz Research at ESML: new ways of approaching and presenting research on musical performance.

Arnon Palty, Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance: Standards of Ear Training;
