Abstract: Sound and music again had excellent representation on the programme at this year’s annual meeting of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies (SCMS) – an immense conference, with roughly 420 panels. SCMS has an official Sound and Music Studies Scholarly Interest Group (SIG), which identified thirty-one panels and thirty individual papers related to sound and/or music, far too many for a single person to cover. Consequently, we have assembled five attendees (Katherine Quanz, Brooke McCorkle, Eric Dienstfrey, Joan Titus, and James Buhler) to report briefly on their experiences at the conference. An appendix lists all panels and individual papers identified by the SIG or mentioned in our correspondents’ reports.
