Réseau européen des sociétés d'analyse et de théorie musicales T&AM,


T&AM – European Network of Music Theory and Analysis


The European Societies for Theory and/or Analysis of Music decided during EuroMAC 9 in Strasbourg in July 2017 to form a European Network. This project came true during a meeting on 24 May 2018 in Zagreb.

It was suggested that the name chosen for the network might be “T&AM”, for “Theory & Analysis of Music”, or the same in many European languages.

The Network was created by the following societies (in alphabetic order:) GATM, Gruppo Analisi e Teoria Musicale; GMTh, Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie; HDGT, Hrvatsko društvo glazbenih teoretičara;OTM, Общество Теории Музыки; PTAM, Polskie Towarzystwo Analizy Muzycznej; SBAM, Société belge d'analyse musicale;SFAM, Société française d'Analyse musicale; SMA, Society for Music Analysis; VMTh, Vereniging voor Muziektheorie.

The Network will hold its next meeting on 22 November 2018 in Aix-en-Provence. A dedicated website will be opened as soon as possible. It will announce the conditions of membership, which will be open to all European researchers in music theory and/or analysis.
