The Journal for Artistic Research (JAR) is an international, online, open-access and peer-reviewed journal that disseminates artistic research from all disciplines. JAR invites the ever-increasing number of artistic researchers to develop what, for the sciences and humanities, are standard academic publication procedures. It serves as a meeting point of diverse practices and methodologies in a field that has become a worldwide movement with many local activities.

Issue 25 contains 7 contributions in 4 languages:

Em Vasco Alves ‘A∴418: Um Contributo para a Pesquisa Artística em Música’, é introduzido o método, A∴418, orientado ao estudo da interpretação musical. Através da aplicação de duas técnicas de análise, é descrita a narrativa sonora que o intérprete constrói a partir do texto musical original do compositor. Finalmente é apresentada uma partitura na qual aparecem os detalhes tanto do compositor quanto do intérprete.

‘Vox Spatium’ de Sofía Balbontín describe dos exploraciones sobre la acústica del espacio urbano y arquitectónico. En el proceso de exploración, comienza a forjarse una narrativa que trasciende de los espacios humanos a los espacios no humanos, planteando cuestiones en torno a la entropía urbana y la actual era geológica del Antropoceno.

In ‘Aubiome: A Collaborative Method for the Production of Interactive Electronic Music’ Joel Diegert and Adrián Artacho investigate the potential of integrating the saxophone with real-time electronics. The six-stage, iterative working process that emerged during the aubiome project is broken down and described.

Ulvi Haagensen’s ‘Cleaning in progress: the line between art and life’ explores the connections and overlaps between art and life through a multi-disciplinary art practice that combines installation, sculpture, drawing, performance and video, and merges this with everyday experiences, examining the more mundane aspects of everyday life.

In his exposition, ‘Future Earth Scream Now - The Solresol Birdsong Translator’, Jim Lloyd presents a ‘speculative fabulation’ on communication with birds. He describes a device built to ‘listen’ to birdsong and translate it into human speech utilising the obscure musical language Solresol (François Sudre, 1866). 

Tabea Rothfuchs führt in ‘I lost time and space. Where am I? – Erzählen von chronischen Schmerzen’ eine Reihe von Dialogen mit Schmerzpatienten und Fachärzten. Der Beitrag geht der Frage nach, was mit der inneren und äußeren Welt eines Menschen geschieht, wenn kein medizinisches Verfahren den Ursprung eines anhaltenden Schmerzempfindens (weiter) entschlüsseln kann.

Helga Schmid & Kevin Walker’s ‘The Atemporal Event’ describes the process, outcomes, and analysis related to a twenty-four-hour event they organized in London, investigating the question of how to change perceptions of time by treating it as a malleable material. The research brings together the authors’ research on ‘uchronia’ (temporal utopia or non-time) and anthropological perspectives on designing embodied experiences. 

Keywords include:  Acoustic Space, Anthropocene, Augmented Instruments, Autoethnography, Embodied Research, Inter-species, Memory, Pain, Performance, Translation, Uchronia and Urban Entropy.

JAR provides a digital platform where multiple methods, media and articulations can function together to generate insights into artistic research endeavours. In its peer-reviewed section, it seeks to promote ‘expositions,’ which aim to engage practice and demonstrate research. JAR views artistic research as an evolving field where research and art are positioned as mutually influential. If you are considering submitting something to the journal, be sure to look at our guidelines. The next deadline for JAR 29 (first issue of 2023) is the 31st of May 2022.

JAR works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.
