This session, an approved session for the 2010 PAMLA Conference to be held (November 13-14) at Chaminade University of Honolulu, investigates the production of, marketing of, and aesthetic issues surrounding musical performance. Music is an easily-accessible forum for artists who can publish their work using technological tools like garage band and online publications such as myspace, facebook, and iTunes. "Music As Voice" is looking for proposals dealing with any aspect of musical production. Papers focusing on ways the disenfranchised musicians secure an outlaw position within a dominant cultural medium are particularly welcome. Please submit your proposals using the PAMLA Paper Proposal System:
