EMP Pop Conference 2014

We hear a lot about The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as “The” museum for music in the United States. Last week was the 2014 Induction Ceremony at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn, NY.

However my favorite American music museum is the EMP Museum in Seattle, Washington. I have been a member since 2009. We have visited EMP twice in our travels.

It’s unfortunate that our 2014 vacation plans don’t include Seattle this year. I would loved to have attended the EMP Pop Conference.

I attended the Pop Conference in New York City the past two years. The EMP Pop Conference moved back to the Seattle EMP Museum this year.

APRIL 24–27, 2014

We turn to music to put the world in motion. From communication by talking drum to sounds streamed off mobile phones, music has accompanied the movement of people, alleviated work, and pulsated leisure. This year’s EMP Pop Conference, back in Seattle after three years roaming, offers more than 100 presentations exploring the subject of music and mobility.

I find the schedule for the EMP Pop Conference 2014 more esoteric than ever. The session that interests me the most is:

Reflections on Mobile Music Studies Roundtable

The Oxford Handbook of Mobile Music Studies(2014) is a two-volume publication featuring almost fifty scholars that consolidates a new research subfield. This roundtable includes the Handbook’s editors and additional contributors, with presentations analyzing the field itself and examples such as mobile music marketing in Brazil, iPod/iPhone DJing, online radio in the US versus Japan, and the automotive aesthetics of “G-Funk” recordings.
