Music & Sport: 'Knowing The Score' Conference

Music & Sport: 'Knowing The Score' Conference


From team songs sung after a match to Arthur Honegger’s 1928 ‘Rugby’ symphonic movement; from terrace chants to Neil Hannon’s ‘Duckworth-Lewis Method’ concept album, sport and music have always been inextricably linked. Both produce moments of community, transcendence, and emotional resonance - and both are vital components of the past, present and future of modern culture.

In 2019 the ‘Fields of Vision’ sport and art network will be hosting ‘Knowing the Score’ a one day conference to bring together scholars, practitioners and the public to discuss the wide and varied links between music and sport. There will also be performances of musical works specially commissioned for the conference. Building on the success of previous ‘Fields of Vision’ conferences, we want to attract the widest possible participation, enable new approaches, and forge new collaborations.

Our confirmed conference Key Note Speaker will be sportswriter, and author of Promised Land and A Yorkshire Tragedy ANTHONY CLAVANE. The conference will also feature a new work of contemporary performance overseen by international renowned performance practitioner, author and academic TERESA BRAYSHAW. The conference will also features a series of papers given by international academics plus a very special performance of a newly commissioned song exploring conference themes.
