This conference explores musician’s long relationship with their instruments and instrumentalities, questioning issues of autonomy and agency in the apparent dichotomy between tools and musical expression.
The Orpheus Institute has launched its first MOOC on Artistic Research in Music. A MOOC (Massive Open Online Course) is a free online course available for anyone to enroll. The first MOOC on Artistic Research in Music offers an introduction to the most relevant research tools, techniques and methodologies as well as the key concepts of artistic research in music. The course is available on edX, which is the leading platform for online learning and education.
The 11 doctoral students were selected out of 42 applicants. The group is again very international with nine different nationalities. The topics are ranging from interpretation and composition over phrasing to the cello in late-nineteenth-century France.
