Collaborative Music Creation
Karst de Jong
COLLABORATIVE MUSIC CREATION: leading conservatory students in musical creation processes
This research is about the development of active autonomous creativity among conservatory students in classical departments. In this exposition I will discuss the nature of collaborative creation processes, and critically investigate my own role as a coach and facilitator of these processes in order to better understand how ideas are being generated, developed and ultimately shaped into a performed piece. The investigation will be illustrated with a selected number of projects I have been involved in during the years 2017-2020.
Silence surrounds us, and silence around us
What does silence mean to us now? The silence surrounds us with sound phenomena. We recognise the silence in our living space through hearing. We silently recognise its subjectivity and objectivity day by day. Silence can give us many different meanings, such as distance, coldness, or loneliness. The research question as the starting point for this artistic research is, "What can we see around us in this silence? ". This research question focuses on common sense and the habits of contemporary life. If creativity helps us, how far is the change necessary in the research context of a common space?
Agential Matter (Invisible Landscapes)
Agential Matter (Invisible Landscapes) was carried out as research fellowship of the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme, and in affiliation with The Art Academy, Faculty of Fine Art, Music and Design at the University of Bergen.
The project examines performativity of algae, objects and bodies in instances of observation in scientific research, industrial production and artistic encounter, related to kelp forests along the Norwegian Coast. The spaces of investigation are seen as sites of social practice, and performativity as an ongoing dialogue between different parts involved, with matter as an important actant in spaces of transformation.
