“Truth happens to an idea.” So wrote William James in 1907; and he continued “[truth] becomes true, is made true by events.” James was not thinking of musical performance or of artistic research, but his assertion would seem to apply equally or more so to those domains—domains with which the Orpheus Institute is primarily concerned. Truths in performance are only created and apprehended in the process of performing; and understanding that process constitutes the domain of what we call “artistic research.”

Experience :: Music :: Experiment, an Orpheus seminar to be held on February 13 and 14, 2020, begins with these observations and continues by asking questions like: What follows? What other aspects of pragmatism apply to our field of study? In performance, in research, what is the relationship between experience and experiment? Can pragmatism illuminate other performative relationships—between habit and creativity, between notation and embodied knowledge, between selves and practices, between history and innovation?
