The Sociedad de Análisis y Teoría Musical (SATMUS) was founded in June 2020 by a group of people with deep concerns in the field of music analysis and theory. It includes teachers, students and researchers of music theory and analysis, as well as performers, composers, researchers in related areas and in general music fans. It is interested in all kinds of musical styles and approaches to music analysis and theory. It currently has more than a hundred associates, mainly from Spain, but also from other countries such as Colombia, Argentina, Peru, the USA, France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Italy or Portugal.
The main objective of SATMUS is to improve this discipline and its teaching in Spain and, in general, in the Spanish-speaking community, given the scarce tradition of these studies in Spanish. So, they have launched several initiatives. They have a website (satmus.org) that is serving as information and meeting point for the community around their field, they have established communication channels between the associates through the creation of an email list and they are working in the publication of a specialized magazine. Other planned actions include the organization of congresses, the publication of a specialized magazine, collaboration with national and international organizations with common interests (they are already part of the European Network of Music Theory and Analysis T&AM, which brings together the main European societies in the field) and the advice and awareness of official bodies and other institutions in aspects related to teaching and research in music analysis and theory.
