With the topic 'Sensible and sensorial explorations in Music', the International Orpheus Academy for Music & Theory 2015 will open the field of investigation towards a sensorial approach to music and its aesthetic theories.
On the 'Day of Artistic Research' the four Flemish conservatories and the Orpheus Institute reflect on the state of affairs in artistic research in music in Flanders.
For the fourth Research café, Antwerp’s Royal Conservatoire will be hosting the Portuguese pianist and researcher Paulo De Assis for an innovative and highly individual version of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations. He plays many of the 33 variations on the piano and the contemporary composers Paolo Galli, Bart Vanhecke, Tiziano Manca and Juan Parra Cancino have written adaptations for chamber ensemble.
The eight International ORCiM Seminar, organised at the Orpheus Institute, offers the opportunity for contributors from around the world to gather and explore the theme of: THE MAKING OF MUSICAL TIME; Temporality in Musical Composition and Performance.
