Former Research Fellow and docARTES coordinator
Lucia D’Errico is an artist-researcher in the field of music, with a specific focus on performance, experimental practices, and transdisciplinarity. She performs on guitar and other plucked-stringed instruments, with a particular interest in Western notated art music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. From 2014 to 2018 she has been part of the research project MusicExperiment21, with which she has explored notions of experimentation in the performance of notated music in the Western tradition as an expansion of/in opposition to traditional practices of musical interpretation. She holds a PhD from the KU Leuven (docARTES programme) and a master’s degree in English literature, and is also active as a graphic artist and video performer.
She has been a Doctoral Researcher in the ERC funded project MusicExperiment21 (2013–18), a Postdoc Fellow at the Orpheus Institute, and part of the coordinating team of the doctoral programme docARTES. Together with Paulo de Assis (Orpheus Institute) she is currently the co-editor of the book series Artistic Research at Rowman & Littlefield. Her monograph Powers of Divergence: An Experimental Approach to Music Performance (2018) is published by Leuven University Press.
