VI Music-Philosophy Conference

“Music Across Time and Culture and It’s Invariable Traits”
Ronda 2009

The question of its universality has been an obsession for many disciplines. Thus, musicologists are not discouraged when affirming the anthropological weight of music due to the fact that some people cannot be receptive to musical manifestations, which has abusively been attributed to exclusivity. Contemporary musical reflection seeks an answer by widening the spectrum of what is considered musical and delving into its basic structures in order to find its invariable traits. The Music Philosophy Conference, therefore, attempts to sponsor similar work.
