English [French translation below] Research centres and groups CERMAA, ICONEA and IReMus are delighted to inform you that the main theme for number eight of NEMO-Online will be: Music as science or music as art? This question has brought up controversy for centuries. It seems useful to apprehend what is the current position of music and musicology about this conundrum. Other themes are also proposed: The concepts and terminology of musicology and their evolution Variations on the linguistics of musicology. Have homophonic terms in various languages and different cultures the same meaning ? Collation of a multilingual lexicon taking these linguistic [more…]

English [French translation below] NEMO-Online is delighted to propose this new article by Amine Beyhom on notational tools and graphical analyses of melody and rythm. Musical notation has been reputed as disqualified for the analysis of “Foreign” musics since – at least – the experiments of Charles Seeger with the Melograph. It is nevertheless still used as the main analytic – and teaching – tool for these musics in most researches in musicology, and today in the teaching of these musics in autochthonous conservatories. Seeger’s experiments brought at his time cutting-edge solutions – and alternatives – to score notation but, [more…]

[Download links for the article and the Power Point show at the end] Amine Beyhom’s article “A Hypothesis for the Elaboration of Heptatonic Scales”, originally entitled  “A New Hypothesis for the Elaboration of Heptatonic Scales and their Origins” and published (2010) in the proceedings of ICONEA 2008, has been emendated, updated and enriched, and is reissued for NEMO-Online Vol. 4 No. 6.
