About this article

The chapter describes the application of some of Rheinberger's theory of 'experimental system' to a group of artistic researchers in music at the Orpheus Research Centre in Music in Gent, Belgium. It suggests that some notions, such as epistemic thing, may be quite transferable, while others, such as technical object, are more problematic. The chapter gives an insight into how one may appropriate concepts from other disciplines for an investigation into what artistic researchers do.
