Seminar On Sound And Score



Orpheus Research Centre in Music [ORCiM], April 22-23, 2010 Ghent, Belgium



This two-day INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR, organised by the ORPHEUS RESEARCH CENTRE IN MUSIC [ORCiM], introduces the act of notating as an important and pivotal activity within the rich array of activities that constitute musical practice. The seminar aims at exploring the intimate relation(s) between SOUND AND SCORE and the artistic possibilities that this relationship yields for performers, composers and listeners. Three main perspectives will be adopted: a conceptual approach that allows for contributions from other fields of enquiry (history, musicology, semiotics, etc.), a practical one that takes the skilled body as its point of departure and finally an experimental approach that challenges state-of-the-art practices.

The seminar will be relevant for musicians and graduate students working in areas of research linked to musical practice.

Themes related to all aspects of the seminar topic are welcome. Please find the CALL FOR PROPOSAL and MORE INFORMATION through Orpheus Institute’s website.
