ORCiM Seminar

ORCiM Seminars are conferences hosted by researchers from the Orpheus Research Centre in Music [ORCiM]. Each seminar is a unique opportunity to share and exchange artistic research findings about a specific topic. 
Several slots remain open to application through a Call for Papers. This way, the seminar programme combines presentations given by selected guest speakers, ORCiM researchers and external participants. Special care is taken to spotlight music performances. The outcomes of presentations and  performances at ORCiM Seminars are usually bundled in a publication within the Orpheus Institute Series.

Sound & Score

ORCiM Seminar 2010

December 15-16, 2010

As an art form based upon sound, music deals with complex semiotic translations and interactions between different perceptual senses and systems of signification: sound, score, meaning. Primarily, music has to do with the invisible, with forces that cannot be seen but that touch listeners in very compelling ways. However, in many cultures - Western and non-Western - music has been codified in notated form, originating complex written artefacts - the score -. Here, different signs and symbols not only allow for the retention and transmission of certain elements of the musical fabric but also liberate forces that are not conceivable without graphic representations.
