Exploratory Experimental Practices In Music

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.

Transbody is a follow-on project from Rebody, which was performed at the 2010 ORCiM festival. Transbody will be a major performance, in which Rebody algorithms are used to expose a dancer to an experimental setup, challenging the dancer to transpose his or her body into a visio-acoustic constellation. The effect will be that through artistic transformations a new experience of what a 'body' can be will be introduced that potentially will trigger the creation of new artistic patterns.

Mapping SAMPlab

The project 'Mapping Silent Aspects of Music Performance Lab' starts from the elaboration and creation of an experimentation platform for artist-researchers to explore the importance of and to experiment with the non-sounding elements of music practice/performance. This lab is a technical as well as a conceptual platform, offering both aspects of support. It is a joint project by the designer of the lab Juan Parra Cancino, artist-researcher, composer and guitarist, and Kathleen Coessens, artist-researcher, philosopher and pianist, relying on their respective expertise in electronic music and conceptual mapping.

Rebody is a collaboration between Gerhard Eckel, Michael Schwab and David Pirro that was performed at the 2010 Orcim festival. It uses modes of experimentation in a number of implicit ways, which will retrospectively be analyzed in an attempt to formulate how experimentation exactly mattered to the production of the work. Rebody is the first in a number of case studies to be analyzed for a definition of experimental research practice. Situated somewhere between theory and practice such case studies will attempt to come as close to the phenomenon of experimentation in artistic research outside of predefined theories of experimentation.
