From Analysis to Music

EventMay 27, 2009

ORCiM Seminar May 2009

The Orpheus Research Centre in Music [ORCiM] has asked four outstanding musicians to present results of their artistic activity linked to or generated from specific analytical views: Fulvio Delli Pizzi, Jan Michiels, Ian Pace and Peter Swinnen.

It has been argued that musical analysis can aid musicians in enhancing their artistic activity. But how can they actually employ musical analysis for composing new works and for fruitfully informing instrumental practice? This seminar does not seek a theoretical answer which would be just one among the many already existing. It aims rather to show concrete examples of performances and compositions in whose genesis musical analysis has played an important role.
