NEWS: JULY 2014

 (updated July 11)

 

  Exams are now over and summer is finally upon us at Danish universities. Here at soundmusicresearch.org we  continue our series of features on the people and projects within the research program The Performances of Everyday Living. In this NEWS update, we highlight the work of Claudio Cifuentes Aldunate and report about other goings on within the research program:

 

The Dialog of the Signifiers: Reflecting upon the Various Arts by Means of an Aesthetic of Intermediality

My research interest is mainly focused on the experience of aesthetic enjoyment and its understanding. This understanding arises from the analysis of the components of the aesthetic object - its semic units - together with an analysis of the additive processes involved in forming the sense of the object. This process appeals to the perceptual subjectivity experienced when encountering the artistic phenomenon. We could call this a semio-aestetic approach. The analytical procedure is performed textually, intertextually and intermedially. The signifiers’ dance moves from literature to music, from music to its performance space (architecture), from music to its bodily reaction (movement, dance). This drift has led me through the musicality of language, encountering the dialogue between the words and the music of which they are part (e.g. the tango and its dysphoria, dancing the absence, moving with sadness, i.e. to make sublime the pathos of the everyday).
 
These reflections have resulted in papers about the body and its meaning, the tango as a multimodal phenomenon of music, lyric and dance, as well as a lecture on the sublime in a particular dialogue between literature, music and architecture.

As with the other projects being carried out by core members of The Performances of Everyday Living, Claudio's ongoing project will be documented on a dedicated webpage here at www.soundmusicresearch.org. Claudio's page is  HERE and is also available via the button at the top of the entry page at www.soundmusicresearch.org.

 

  The interview with Vitus Vestergaard regarding the research project Investigations of Metal Music and Visuals: Logo, Cover,  Brand (see HERE) in Videnskab.dk appeared on July 3 and can be read HERE - in Danish. 

 

There one can also read comments by Christian Mosbæk Johannessen, Assistant Professor, Dept. of Language and Communication, SDU (Centre for Human Interactivity & Centre for Multimodal Communication). Christian has recently joined The Performances of Everyday Living as an Affiliated Member, and we are very pleased to welcome Christian to our research group!

 

In addition to the interview in Videnskab.dk, an interview with Vitus Vestergaard was aired on Danish Radio station DR3 during the morning of July 7. You can hear it (in Danish) HERE at 2:08:40 (2 hours, 8 minutes and 40 seconds into the program).

 

  Cynthia M. Grund returned on July 8 from a two-week research-related junket that included giving a paper at the Fourth Annual Conference of the Royal Musical Association's Music and Philosophy Study Group (see p. 31 in the conference program HERE) at King's College, London; working meetings with Fernando Bravo at University of Cambridge, Queen's College (see HERE for Fernando Bravo's presentations in the seminar series Topics in the Aesthetics of Music and Sound at SDU February 20 and 21, 2014); and working meetings in Yorkshire with Jenny Carter and Samad Ahmadi of De Montfort University as well as Barry Eaglestone, University of Sheffield (Retired) - see, for example, HERE for some of the cooperative efforts with The  Aesthetics of Music and Sound/NNIMIPA in which these researchers have been involved.

 

  As previously mentioned on the page devoted to his ongoing research project, Dissonance and Moment HERE, Mogens Davidsen will be on the road this summer and early autumn

 

  • in connection with the Hans Christian Andersen Festival in Odense ("Hans Christian Andersen and the Image")
  • at Øregaard Museum ("German Expressionism and WWI"), and
  • at the H.C. Ørsted Institute, Copenhagen ("Entropy in Art and Reality").

Information regarding times and venues will be available here on www.soundmusicresearch.org.

The Performances of Everyday Living

 

Introduction: The SDU research program The Performances of Everyday Living (PEL) based at the Institute for the Study of Culture, widens the purview of The Aesthetics of Music and Sound - Cross-disciplinary Interplay between the Humanities, Technology and Musical Practice (AMS) www.soundmusicresearch.org. The official date for the launch of PEL was January 1, 2014. Research programs of this kind are established for three years at a time, in the case of PEL 2014-2016. AMS functioned 2006–2013 as a research program devoted to investigating music primarily in terms of information and communication. AMS continues to exist, but now functions as a background milieu for PEL, where PEL moreover examines cultural, physiological/anatomic and institutional preconditions and implications of the appropriation, use – and meaning – of music. These are compared and contrasted with the corresponding preconditions and implications for the appropriation, use and meaning of art, food and physical culture/exercise. By coordinating research areas as disparate as these, we hope to provide increased understanding of central activities which invoke a participatory aesthetic in the life and experience of modern humans. These activities are constructively contrasted and compared as species of performances. The relevance of performance as an integrative perspective appropriate for this research has been clearly demonstrated within NNIMIPA: Nordic Network for the Integration of Music Informatics, Performance and Aesthetics (www.nnimipa.org), an SDU-based research network that has functioned in parallel with AMS since 2007.

 

Projects: Here is a representative selection of projects that either were in progress or under development as PEL became officially established on January 1, 2014:

 

     Performance, Natural Movement, Exercise and Fitness

Examines connections between authentic artistic performance, musical appropriation, "natural" movement and proprioception.

 

     Music and Meal Culture in Vollsmose

Explores "sensuality" in a Middle Eastern, Islamic perspective in compared with a Scandinavian, Lutheran one, as manifested in the food, art and music practices of the respective cultures. Methods of psychometric validation are explored and employed.

 

Metal Music and Culture

Why is a style of music so fixated upon themes of death, nihilism and self-destruction the preferred conduit for aesthetic self-expression for so many in this, the supposedly happiest of all areas on earth? How does its appeal relate to dark Romanticism and dissonant properties of music and imagery?

 

The Performative Pairing of Food and Music

Comparison and contrast of the roles food and music play as potent regulators of our moods and emotions as the latter influence our experience of meaningfulness and significance in our daily lives.

 

Getting Inside the Music

This project concerns itself with the investigation and development of performative, participatory and immersive techniques in music pedagogy and in the use of music in pedagogy in general.

 

Members: Membership in the Core and associated members work at the Institute for the Study of Culture at SDU; see here. Affiliated members come from relevant external milieux: More information about the roles played by individual group members will be made available as the site for PEL continues to be developed within the context of AMS during the spring of 2014.

Technological and Aesthetic Investigations of the Physical Movements of Pianists: Photo Essay

 

 

During week 42 2012, October 15-21, while the fall break was being observed at Danish universities, research connected with The Aesthetics of Music and Sound was being carried out across the Atlantic at Texas Tech University (TTU), Lubbock Texas. Continuing an investigatory process that began in February 2010 at the fourMs Laboratory at the University of Oslo, Cynthia M. Grund and William Westney have established a collaboration with a new research team for a motion capture pilot study at TTU.

 

Here is a photo essay (requires Flash) that documents the research activities that took place at TTU October 13-18, 2012.

 

 

 

Tip: To view the essay in full-screen mode, just click on the circled arrow in the middle of the picture and then click on the screen icon in the lower left-hand corner. To control the speed with which the slides progress, move the cursor to the lower right-hand corner when in full-screen mode.
