About the journal

Divergence Press is an online, open access, peer-reviewed journal and resource hub for contemporary music based at the Centre for Research in New Music (CeReNeM) at the University of Huddersfield. The Journal publishes work that examines a range of current practices in composition, performance, sound art, music and the moving image, and other cross-artform work. Topics include but are not exclusive to: ontologies of music, indeterminacy in performance, noise, sound spatialisation, philosophies of time, listening cultures, intercultural exchange and multi-disciplinarity in the arts.

The Resources section of the website contains videos of talks, interviews, and performances as well as scores with audio links and lecture papers. These materials are gathered from research projects, masterclasses, conferences, and festival events at hcmf// and Electric Spring, hosted by and associated with CeReNeM and are made available to a wider community as a resource for further engagement and discourse.
