PhD research project: “Plastic Extension of Music”
PhD supervisor: Michael Edward Edgerton
Institution: Malmö Academy of Music
Period: September 2020 – August 2024
What is the artistic significance of being a music interpreter nowadays? None.
I propose a new form of interpretation that goes beyond translation, synaesthesia or musical analysis. This form of creative criticism/ intervention is a plastic extension of music taking the instrumental interpretation (praxis) of a work as a poietic process preceding plasticity.
Considering musical performance as an incompleteness that creates a recollection of material: impressions, technical hacks, muscle memory and more subjective information generated during the physical work with the instrument along the exegetical study and the musical interpretation. To thus extend and complete this experience in space, concretising the music through the hands and the eye of the artist interpreter in a new model of interpretation and plastic creation.
Plastic extension takes place through the materialization of these ideas by a production process, where the transformation of this experience passes through the critical filter, the interpreter becoming a management and rejection device which thus makes it possible to produce a new creation. An intervention that extends beyond the ephemeral condition of music and the code of conduct of the score, expressed through this new filter that is a performer with a new voice/hand; an extension of his thought that will go beyond sound, beyond a reproducible material.
