Paulo C. Chagas: Sound, Truth, and Paradigm … Imaginations
In his talk Chagas will present his research on phenomenology of sound and music focused on the notions of truth and paradigm. It begins with Heidegger’s view of art as a tool for achieving truth, followed by Kuhn’s ideas on advances in science by way of paradigms and revolutions. The notion of paradigm as a disciplinary matrix leads to a comparative approach between science and art, aiming to observe similarities and differences. Three cultural paradigms within the history of Western music are explored: vocal, instrumental, and electroacoustic. The automaticity of music apparatuses is viewed through several lenses, including the way that the electroacoustic paradigm inaugurated the era of music as a torture apparatus. As illustration on his artistic output, he will present Sound Imaginations, a recent work that explores the concepts of listening cultures and audiovisual immersion.
