Today, the mediation of contemporary (art) music offers a large, interdisciplinary field for activities and research, which in terms of institutions and methodology is particularly heterogeneous. It encompasses the work of cultural agents in institutions and music ensembles as well as at schools and music schools and it includes diverse concepts, pre-conditions, goals and certain courses of action.
This collection documents work and results of the programme area “ConTempOhr. Mediating Contemporary Music” in Salzburg and consists of papers on elementary music pedagogy, dance and choreography, composition und improvisation, psychology and cultural sociology and intermedia artistic work. It also contains papers referring to music mediation for leadership development in businesses, at festivals of contemporary (art) music, as part of work in music ensembles, at general schools, music schools, universities, and in instrumental pedagogy.
