The Orpheus Research Centre has been using the concept of Artistic Experimentation as a catalyst for creating new understanding in Artistic Research across the artistic disciplines.
Orpheus Institute promotes research that is embedded in the artist's musical practice and is primarily guided by artistic objectives and aesthetic interests.
Educational programmes at Orpheus Institute are designed for those musicians whose work raises questions or problems that can only be articulated and analysed through research. It is our strong belief that posing and resolving such issues, can change a musician’s own practice and open new paths for others to explore.
The development of artistic research as a new discipline in the arts, one that has its own strengths and is in constant dialogue with the more established research disciplines, serves as a general practice throughout the activities at Orpheus Institute.
Artistic research offers a framework for musicians to deal with questions resulting from their own musical practice, through research embedded in and guided by that same musical practice.
