The major inquiry of this research is therefore “How does the concept of embodiment serve the creation of interdisciplinary work within a musical context?”

This will be explored in an examination of my own artistic practice through artistic research methodology, with the theoretical framework I have developed over the course of my degree and through the following sub-questions:

-What strategies can help to encourage, support, and develop the creation of “embodied” interdisciplinary work both in educational and professional settings?


-How does knowledge of specific extra musical practices – in this case textile craft and ancient wool traditions, coupled with theatre, dance and movement – relate to and inform the musical process and content of an artistic project?
