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.
This study day is concerned with the moment of translation between gesture and notation. We are particularly interested in how the development of notation in contemporary dance may map onto a gesture-based understanding of music.
Renowned harpsichordist and practice-based researcher Robert Hill will discuss his approach to analyzing flow and effectivity in performance, specifically focusing on the Aria from the Golberg Variations. Other presentations will include a briefing about the Music Experiment 21 project with Paulo de Assis as principal investigator and research towards an improvisatory methodology by Bobby Mitchell. Participants are welcome to listen and participate actively through questioning and discussion.
The Study Day examines Deleuze and Guattari's concept of diagram in Artistic Research from the point of view of De Landa's Assemblage Theory (Paulo De Assis), Schiller's Aesthetic Education (Kamini Vellodi), Wittgenstein's Picture Theory (Paolo Giudici) and Manning and Massumi's Texture (Christoph Brunner). To conclude the Study Day, participants are invited to submit their questions based on the Reading List circulated.
