Abstract

Aiming to enhance inspiration in improvisation and composition in contemporary modal music, through and towards her artistic practice, this research will first explore in-depth aspects of metric/rhythmic improvisational practices through paradigmatic figures of the 20th century from various modal traditions. 

Through decoding, analysing and reflecting on these practices, as well as her own practice, Marina Liontou-Mochament intends to acquire a systematized and articulated knowledge of this improvisational practice. This embodied knowledge will eventually be used as a tool for composing music, contributing consequently on the one hand to the field of metric/rhythmic modal improvisation, and on the other hand to the genre of contemporary modal music.
