Artistic research shares with François Laruelle's 'non-philosophy' and the emerging field of 'performance philosophy' a condition of internal conflict: On one side, artistic research breaks out of acceptable knowledge, on the other it seeks to make its outcomes accepted as knowledge; on one side, it appropriates artistic modes of inquiry and presentation for research, on the other research already pervades the very artistic practice that produced them; on one side, artistic research resists institutionalism, on the other it needs to develop and maintain research networks in and across institutions.
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.
