In traditional opera creation, roles are strictly defined: the composer and librettist create the performance “text” - the score and libretto - usually prior to the gathering of the performing forces. The composer and librettist are the primary creators, with the greatest degree of artistic freedom. The stage director and the design team have some creative liberty, while relying on the given text dictated by the primary creators. The conductor and the rest of the musicians are interpreters, their roles usually strictly defined, with limited creative freedom. However, in new opera creation, the roles of creator, interpreter and performer are often significantly more loosely defined. In my research, I shall explore the ways in which a group of artists collaborate to create a new work, and compile a suggested working method for a co-created opera production, with a focus on different types of shared leadership.
How to blur the boundaries between contemporary Western art music and artistic pop music by the co-creation of intriguing interdisciplinary artistic work?
How to blur the boundaries between contemporary Western art music and artistic pop music by the co-creation of intriguing interdisciplinary artistic work? Initially the intention of this project was to fulfil the shortage in the repertoire for cello and live electronics, which represent a highly physical and sensual entity as well as an intellectual experience. However, the artistic research is better of when it is embedded in an interdisciplinary context. Therefore, co-creation will be a key process in the creation of artistic work. This research also questions aspects like spatialisation, virtual reality, visual content in live performance, live electronics and recording techniques. The outcomes of this artistic research project will be audio-visual performances, artistic artefacts (artwork, music film, installations) and a dissertation.
My research topic is rhythm and rhythm notation in Western research, music theory, and practice. The research aims to investigate the role music notation held in shaping time, i.e. how musical notation not only preserves, but also structures it, in order that it becomes writable.
