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.
Throughout the 20th Century, the guitar has proven itself to be an instrument of many possibilities due to the increased interest shown by avant-garde composers. Several of these composers and/or compositions are either rarely performed, or performed with considerable difficulty due to problems of various nature. The key objective of this project is the documentation and reconstruction of the historical performance practice of such pieces. This result will be achieved through gathering information from historical performers and their collaboration with specifically relevant composers. Case studies to support the research will include music by Berio, Kagel, Lachenmann and Radulescu.
This research project critically and creatively investigates musical notation both as an extension of music aimed at performers and as a medium which reaches beyond or enlarges music‘s context, seeking to define new ways of thinking what music can become through innovative approaches to notation.
