There is a tendency that discussions concerning artistic research is kept theoretic, thus avoiding the most important aspect of the research: the artistic practice.
Even if practical obstacles (such as spaces, technology, equipment) are bypassed, there is still a need for the artist to figure out an efficient way in which the practice can be combined with other means of communication, or how it can stand by itself. If the practice cannot be presented “live” what kind of modes of representation are usable? How can knowledge about the practice be communicated to the audience in a way that may makes it useful?
These thoughts are the backdrop to this network meeting for artistic research in music in Sweden. Participants are invited to present their ongoing work, or parts of it, in a manner that includes the artistic practice and discuss means and methods. The number of presenters is limited and the goal is to get content and stylistic variation.
