The Progect Network was initiated by Allan Moore of the University of Surrey. From a “round robin” email communication that Allan Moore sent in 2010, a number of ideas emerged among a group of international scholars.  The first conference was hosted by Allan Moore and Philippe Gonin at the Centre Georges Chevrier and the Université de Bourgogne.  Following that first conference, the interest that developed led to a biennial conference offering.

We have run an international conference every two years, with past events held in Dijon (2014), Edinburgh (2016), Lund (2018) and Ottawa (2021). Our conference keynotes have included:

  • Franco Fabbri

  • Simon Frith 

  • Allan Moore

  • Bill Bruford (Yes, King Crimson, Genesis, Earthworks)

  • Bernard Gueffier (Musea Records)

  • Georgina Born

  • Chris Atton

  • John Covach

  • Lars Lilliestam

  • Paul Northfield (recording engineer)

  • Sarah Hill


The next conference will take place at The Krzysztof Penderecki
Academy of Music in Krakow (Poland) in
2024 (September 5-7)
