Detecting Degrees of Density in Aggregates

Luk Vaes, Dirk Moelants

This project follows up on Luk Vaes’ doctoral work with regards to extended piano techniques. In contemporary music, clusters (dense aggregates of adjacent pitches) have become a common part of the musical language. Yet, our understanding of how clusters are perceived does not match its popularity in compositional practice. The few existing cluster theories are contradictory to each other as well as to the cluster’s history in scores; empirical data on the cluster's aural perception are almost non-existing.

Peyotl

Luk Vaes, Hans Cafmeyer

Composer-teacher-pianist Hans Cafmeyer and pianist-researcher Luk Vaes work together to develop new and pedagogically appropriate repertoire to teach children the use of Extended Piano Techniques.

Reconstructing Kagel


In 1969 and 1970, Mauricio Kagel “made” two instrumental theatre pieces, Unter Strom and Tactil, for experimental sound producers. Since a fully encoded and composer-authorized score is lacking, the historical performers have been the only ones to play and record these compositions. The only adequate possibility to perform these pieces anew is through reconstruction of the original performance practice and the making of a score.
