ECHO: a music-centered journal

"Echo repeats the last words spoken, and gives back the sounds she has
                                (From Ovid's Metamorphoses)

        The desire to understand how music works is not the exclusive domain
of musicologists; indeed, music is an integral part of cultural experience
for all people. *ECHO: a music-centered journal* is a forum for discourse
about music in which voices from a variety of disciplines speak. ECHO
explores our relationship to music in movement, time, and space, with the
critical theories of dance, film, architecture, design, sociology, and
cultural studies. Contributors amplify music's power by investing it with
new meanings, and give back the sounds they have heard.

        We invite contributions about musics and musical experiences from
all disciplines. Possible areas of interest might include:
                The Urban Soundscape;
                Music and Migration;
                Music and the Body;
                Music-Public and Private.
Submissions may address musics from any historical, geographic, or cultural

        As a web-based journal, ECHO can include sound in its articles
(rather than depending entirely on conventional notation), as well as
movement examples and color illustrations. New issues are put on-line
biannually, and each issue contains articles and reviews of both music and
artistic projects about music, as well as memoirs and interviews.
Submissions for articles follow The MLA Handbook of Style. A single hard
copy of all necessary materials can be sent to:
