T&AM – European Network of Music Theory and Analysis

The European Societies for Theory and/or Analysis of Music decided during EuroMAC 9 in Strasbourg in July 2017 to form a European Network. This project came true during a meeting on 24 May 2018 in Zagreb.

It was suggested that the name chosen for the network might be “T&AM”, for “Theory & Analysis of Music”, or the same in many European languages.

The Network was created by the following societies (in alphabetic order): GATM, Gruppo Analisi e Teoria Musicale; GMTh, Gesellschaft für Musiktheorie; HDGT, Hrvatsko društvo glazbenih teoretičara; OTM, Общество Теории Музыки; PTAM, Polskie Towarzystwo Analizy Muzycznej; SBAM, Société belge d'analyse musicale; SFAM, Société française d'Analyse musicale; SMA, Society for Music Analysis; VMTh, Vereniging voor Muziektheorie.

The Network held a meeting on 22 November 2018 in Aix-en-Provence.
• The ATAM was formally accepted as member of the T&AM.
• It was envisaged that membership, in due time, would be open to members of the participating societies, through their society. Researchers from countries where no society exists would be requested to become members of a society in any other country of their choice.
• The project of a dedicated website was also further discussed.

Since then, a provisional website, Europeanmusictheory, has been created to promote European projects in music theory and/or analysis. Participation to these projects is open to anyone in Europe.

The SDMT, Српско друштво за музичку теорију, Srpsko društvo za muzičku teoriju (Serbian Society for Music Theory) was created in Belgrade on 12 September 2019 and joined the T&AM.
