The composer as a co-creator of bridges between society and contemporary music: A matter of dialogue?
The source and target domain of this research project is situated at the crossroads of composition, performance and education. The idea of this investigation is to develop field research on the social projects I'm engaged in both in Brazil and in Belgium. I intend to perform, on a long-term basis, a series of compositions for the various ensembles present in these projects. The interaction with these contexts will help me to delve into the three key aspects of this research: my development as a composer by engaging in these different social projects, the impact my composition could have on students' perception and musical development, and finally how this process can help to build a bridge of communication between composer and the majority of society. Would it come precisely from the underprivileged strata of society, the answer to the current state of indifference of most people in society to contemporary music?
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.
