On Klänge - Space, Time and Body (2021) Erika Matsunami
The start point of this artistic research is an artwork Corona-STEMS-GALAXYOMEGA (May 2020) by Lukas Huisman who a pianist and Ph.D. in performing arts/piano in classic-modern music, he started to embodiment "Corona" (1962) by Takemitsu together with a composer Patrick Housen newly. I collaborate with Housen as a visual artist for a sound installation in this artistic project. Thereby the forthcoming Joint artistic research "variations" which relates to this artistic research on Klänge - Space, Time and Body, I as a visual artist, explore the subject of time and space in "Corona" (1962) for pianist(s) by Toru Takemitsu for the exploration of new interpretations. My practical contribution performance in the site-specific installation for variation I is "Corona" without Pianist for 4 ch discrete sound installation in 2020 is an invisible sense such as literary musical expression in "who is left to drift in the loneliness of the remaining scent." Thus theoretical exploration is in terms of ongoing artistic research in the philosophy of sound. The aim of this artistic research is a new multi-layered open score "Variation I, II and III".

SEMAPHOR (2021) Gerriet K. Sharma
“Semaphor” is a spatial sound-composition for two pioneering instruments, which are explored both practically and theoretically by the artists Susanne Fröhlich and Gerriet K. Sharma: Helder Tenor recorder and the Icosahedral loudspeaker (IKO). If one understands both instruments as sound projectors, sound textures in sculpturally entangled states, spatially demarcated sound layers and scenographies can be composed and perceived in a way, scarcely producible in this ensemble constellation until now. The piece attempts to discover the shared perceptual spectrum of both instruments in dialogue and thus to expand the aesthetic possibilities of spatial composition in the present.

Effects of visual instructions in one-on-one violin lessons (2021) Mauro Smorto
Starting from my personal teaching experience, I have been studying the effect of visual instructions on my violin pupils. With a detailed analysis of the interactions between students and teacher and the help of 36 observation sheets, I could finally see the effects of enhancing visuals on student’s musical learning. All conclusions were drawn after taking into account specific studies mentioned in the theoretical framework and with respect to the observations made by three external experts. This research found further evidence of the link between visualization and critical thinking as well.
