día de los muertos parade 0 M. Smith (From Marian Smith) How lucky we are to be in San Antonio at the same time this event is taking place -- it's close to the conference hotel, too.  I copied this from the "San Antonio Current" website, and the AMS Newsletter in August also alerted us to this event:  The Mexican Cultural Institute (MCI) and the UTSA Institute of Texan Cultures (ITC) team up for a collaborative offering that begins at ITC with the presentation of an altar created by UTSA Honors College students, snakes through Hemisfair in a lively procession led by URBAN-15’s elaborately costumed drum-and-dance troupe Carnaval de los Muertos, and culminates at MCI with hot chocolate, pán de muerto, tamales and the unveiling of an ofrenda honoring Tom Frost, the late local banking legend the event organizers remind was a “young immigrant as well as a beloved San Antonian who always showed respect and admiration for Mexican culture” (free, 6-9pm Fri, begins at 801 E. César Chavez Blvd., ends at 600 Hemisfair Plaza Way, texancultures.com).

AMS Ecocriticism Study Group events 0 J. Cohen The AMS Ecocriticism Study Group is sponsoring two events at this year's conference: a joint panel along with the AMS/SMT Music and Disability Study/Interest Groups, and a business meeting.  We welcome all who are interested in any aspect of music's intersection with space, place, nature, the environment, sound, or anyone curious to learn more about ecomusicology to the brief Ecocriticism Study Group business meeting on Friday at 12:30 in Texas E (feel free to bring your own lunch!).   Thursday evening, please join us for an interdisciplinary session Thursday, 8-10pm, in Texas F for the panel "Music, Disability, and the Environment: Bridging Scholarship with Activism," featuring six scholars who work across interconnected areas dealing with public scholarship, space, environment, disability, and activism: Ailsa Lipscombe will discuss how, within medical environments, attentive listening to tripartite conversations between the interlocking forces of human, machine, and architecture reveals ways of being and ways of knowing.   James Deaville will discuss his ongoing activism over disability rights on campus Jessica Schwartz will present on the role of activism and creative dissent in her research and pedagogy, including a recent course she designed titled “anarcho-musicology: music & anarchism.”  Chantal Lemire will explore the relationship between music pedagogy and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) with reference to her own experience and others who live with ADHD Rachel Mundy will discuss music’s place in the posthuman and material turn, an intervention in today’s discourse of ethics she calls “the animanities.” William Robin will speak on how Twitter can function as an effective platform for musicologists to amplify activist work The panel will be moderated by Jessica Holmes, Anabel Maler, and Jacob Cohen.

Canvas for Beto O’Rourke ​ 0 C. Latham Dear Friends,   For those of you attending AMS we wanted to share some information about volunteering for Beto  O’Rourke. Our national meetings are often just before or just after an election and this might be an opportunity for some to participate one of the most contentious and important midterm elections.  We know many of our colleagues who live in swing states and areas with hard elections have been doing this work at home.  Thanks to all who have done this.    We want to encourage those AMS attendees who feel they can to devote some of their time spent in Texas on the weekend before the midterm election to volunteer for the campaign to elect Beto O’Rourke to the United States Senate. While Texas is commonly believed to be a majority Republican state, in fact it has one of the lowest voter turnout records in the country. The campaign for O’Rourke is launching a large Get Out the Vote campaign in this final week, targeting 750,000 eligible voters who are demographically expected to support O’Rourke over his opponent Ted Cruz.   Signing up to canvas door to door in San Antonio is extremely easy. Clicking on the link below will bring you to an interactive map where you can find pop up campaign offices located very close to the conference hotel. Volunteers in the campaign are very eager to receive our support, which involves signing up for a 3 hour spot. For those with the means to travel 10 – 20 minutes from downtown, the campaign asks that volunteers sign up at two specific locations on the east side: Denver Heights (1701 S. Hackberry St San Antonio TX 78210) and Jefferson Heights (2711 Martin Luther King Dr San Antonio 78220), in that order.  These are the pop-ups where people will be able to make the biggest impact.   Here is the link: https://win.betofortexas.com If your schedule doesn’t allow here are some local campaigns you can make even small contributions to:   Joseph Kosper: https://kopserforcongress.com Beto O’Rourke: https://betofortexas.com   Sincerely,    Clara Latham Amy Cimini Brigid Cohen Michael Gallope Glenda Goodman Bonnie Gordon Rachel Vandagriff Emily Wilbourne

History of Theory IG/SG meeting Nov. 2: Workshop with Suzannah Clark 0 R. Grant AMS/SMT conference reminder:  Workshop led by Suzannah Clark, Harvard University: “Schumann, Liszt, and Two Lessons in Reading Tonal Spaces”   SMT History of Theory Interest Group and AMS History of Theory Study Group Friday, 5:45–7:45pm, Location:  Travis CD    This workshop will focus on two composers and two theorists to analyze the historical connections between specific composers and specific theories of tonal space: Robert Schumann's reading of Gottfried Weber, and Franz Liszt's engagement with Carl Weitzmann. Although Schumann begrudgingly read Weber’s Versuch einer geordneten Theorie der Tonsetzkunst (1817–21), it has been argued (Lerdahl 2001, Hoeckner 2006, and others) that the order of keys in Schumann’s multi-movement works and cycles reveal how deep the influence ran. Liszt knew Weitzmann, whose treatise on the augmented triad (Der übermässige Dreiklang, 1853) served as a defense and rationalization of the emerging musical language of the Zukunftsmusik, of which Liszt was a proponent. In turn, it influenced Liszt’s ensuing compositional output. The workshop will bring out the tensions between modern intuitions of iconic tonal spaces and historical configurations by Weber and Weitzmann. Through two musical examples, I shall highlight some of the dividends that venturing into the details of the history of tonal spaces produces for music analysis and hermeneutics.       We hope to see you there!

Analysis of World Music IG meeting, Fri Nov 2, 12:30 to 2pm 0 K. VanDerMeer   Dear colleagues, The Analysis of World Music Interest Group is going to hold an open conversation at our IG meeting, around topics and stakes surrounding the convergence of global and vernacular musics, music theory and analysis, and pedagogy. The meeting will take place on Friday from 12:30 to 2pm. Hope to see many of you there! Here are a few leading questions/prompts that we’ll start with, to get things going: 1) What is, or what should be, the role of the Analysis of World Music IG at SMT (and at AMS/SMT)? 2) What kinds of ways are we, or ought we be, interfacing with SEM's Analysis IG? 3) What kinds of conference-specific activities do people want or can people imagine having? 4) What kinds of ongoing activities should we be undertaking or promoting, beyond the annual meeting? 5) Then a specifically pedagogical bundle of questions: how to bring global vernacular music practices, repertoires, concepts, contexts, issues, etc. into music theory core? This is a lively, complex question, but also can draw upon the robust activity that has taken place around popular music and jazz (for example) in recent years. Some questions might include: What kinds of political or epistemological issues are at stake? How to mitigate them? What kinds of questions do we need to be asking? What kind of training is needed? What kinds of interruptions of existing structures (or at least questionings of assumptions) are enacted? 6) And then of course everyone is encouraged to bring their own questions!   Safe travels to San Antonio,   chris --  Dr. Chris Stover Assistant Professor of Music Theory School of Music, Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts Arizona State University cdstover@asu.edu
