Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group

Mission Statement

The Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group is a discursive space for scholars of 20th- and 21st-century Western Art Music. Through its annual meetings and online communications, the group aims to strengthen, support, and develop its members’ ideas and sense of community; it also seeks to bring attention to and foster scholarship on post-1945 music.


The Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group meets yearly at SMT’s annual meetings in order to discuss business matters and share scholarly work. Diverse formats that break the SMT mold are entertained at the meetings; and materials are typically pre-circulated in order to facilitate in-depth discussion. Given the group’s recent formation, meeting formats are still being established.

This interest group maintains a Google group where members can access general information (group description, announcements, related databases, etc.), as well as sign up for and participate in online discussion. Membership in the group is open to all SMT members and can be requested via the following link:!forum/post-1945-interest-group.
