Public Lecture Series
3 Nov 2021 | Jacob Eriksen + Sabine Sanio | Sound in Artistic Research
This introductory lecture is divided into two parts. In the first part, we will focus on general positions in the theory of artistic research by asking the questions: How can we understand research as artistic? What kind of outcome can artistic research produce? Furthermore, how are these ideas addressed in political debates on artistic research in an academic context? In the second part, we will focus on how evolutions in music and sound art can be understood through the lenses of artistic research. By examining different historical examples in music and sound art, we want to show how the notion of "the new" in compositional and artistic practice reacts to the composers and artists' aesthetic and sociopolitical situatedness.
In the winter semester 2021/22, Sound Studies and Sonic Arts presents a lecture series exploring sound in artistic research. The genome of the master program implies an understanding that theory and practice mutually inform each other and represent two sides of the same coin. We’d like to invite you to join this lecture series and explore the different perspectives on the topic of artistic research as an encouragement to reflect on your own positioning.
Artistic research, aesthetic research, and practice-based research have gained a lot of momentum at art schools and universities in the past few decades. Focusing on alternatives to established methodologies and paradigms based on evidence, historical and political analysis, musicology, critical thinking, and cultural studies, this lecture series addresses how artistic research has been established in sound studies and in the sonic arts.
Primarily for the current MA Sound Studies and Sonic Arts students at the UdK, these talks are also open to the general public and students from all other institutions and departments.
