Abstract

The 2012 joint meeting of the International Conference on Music Perception and Cognition (ICMPC) and the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) brought together over 450 researchers from various disciplines within the field of music cognition and perception. This report summarizes various examples of presentations that exemplify broader topics that permeated the 6-day conference, including: (1) the performer’s perspective, (2) the listener’s perspective, (3) the composer/improviser’s perspective, and (4) the neuroscientist’s perspective. Specifically, the report covers research presented by the five keynote speakers, the two grantees of the SEMPRE-ICMPC12 Young Researcher Award, the five symposiums presented at the conference, and select spoken and poster presentations. The presentations discussed here represent a select but diverse sample of research presented throughout this conference, providing an overview of the current state of the field.
