The Symposium on Archiving and Re-Performing Electroacoustic Music AREM2020 will take place on October 23-24, 2020, bringing together researchers from different fields and backgrounds to discuss questions concerning archiving and re-performing electro-acoustic music, computer music and digitized music, as well as share approaches and knowledge on preserving digital media.
In response to COVID-19, this year’s second edition of AREM was transformed into a hybrid format, taking place simultaneously in Dresden and online.
AREM2020’s theme is ARCHIVING.
Archiving music that involves digital technologies causes new challenges for institutions, libraries and archives, ranging from providing server facilities and maintaining hard- and software to questions of systematizing the now divers, partly digital sources. How can and should these new sources be preserved and archived? Who selects the sources that are maintained? Who takes care about maintaining the accessibility of the archived sources? How is archiving digital media influenced by legal issues? How do other research fields such as media studies, film studies or game studies deal with those questions? And how is archiving music related to the new developments in digital music editions?
