CHIME Meetings in 2018-2019



22d CHIME 2019: ‘Contrasts in Chinese Music’


Beijing, China, 19-22 September 2019

Chinese Music Research Institute,

Central Conservatory of Music, Beijing


From 19 to 22 September 2019, in the 22nd edition of the annual international CHIME meeting, we aim to investigate these musical contrasts, from as many angles as possible. Such as: ‘official’ musical stage and media concerts pitted against local or underground music events, high-brow ancient court music versus ceremonial state music today, popular versus elite and ‘low’ versus ‘high’ traditions, written versus oral music, composed versus improvised and inherited repertoires, art music as compared to functional music, and so forth.
