Fascinated by the riddle of music creation, both in performance and composition, the investigators of this project aspire to unravel exploratory oriented experimentation (EE) in artistic practice. The project’s hypothesis postulates that this method, starting from sensorial observation and dynamic interactive exploration, offers a valuable aesthetic and epistemic tool for music creation.
The artistic practice underlying this project is primordially Calendar Variations (by Douglas a.o.) and its iterations. Calendar Variations (2010 onwards) is a new body of visual artwork that takes as its starting point Calendar, a score for an activity developed in 1971 by the artist Allan Kaprow, as well as observations made in The Artistic Turn (Coessens, Crispin & Douglas 2010).
