Barcelona, June 11-13, 2018

Paulo de Assis, Lucia D'Errico & Juan Parra Cancino will be attending the European Research Music Conference in Barcelona (Universitat Pompeu Fabra) from June 11th to the 13th. They will present the research project MusicExperiment21, for which they received an ERC starting grant in 2013.

The European Research Music Conference will bring together a significant number of the projects funded by the European Research Council that have music as their focus. These projects come from diverse research domains and exemplify the wide variety of high-quality research related to music that is being carried out in Europe. The conference will include talks by the Principal Investigators of the projects, plus demonstrations, short talks, and concerts by other team members. It will be a showcase of the breadth of research topics and approaches that are being supported by the most prestigious funding programme of the European Commission.

MusicExperiment21 (ME21) is an artistic research project funded by the European Research Council and based at the Orpheus Institute. It explores and develops notions of ‘experimentation’ in order to propose new performance practices of Western notated art music. The fruits of this five-year project, which finished earlier this year, are now being published.
