    Natasha Barrett: Composing Tangible Sounds in Space (23.9.19)

    Seminar

    Space as a musical element underpins many of my compositions, installations and multi-media works. Over the years, more advanced computing resources have allowed me to realise ideas that originally existed only in theory, as well as provide a means to continue the research and application of new approaches to spatio-musical composition. »Read more

  • Sofia Dahl: Looking at Musical Movements (6.5.19)

    Sofia Dahl: Looking at Musical Movements (6.5.19)

    Seminar

    Music and movement are intimately connected in many different ways. Both with respect to how musical sounds and rhythms are produced by players, but also how this non-verbal communication is perceived by an audience. The study of music and movement in the past decades have shown the relation to the body is important for players and listeners alike, proving music to be a multimodal experience. In this talk I will present examples of studies of musical movement from both these perspectives and discuss some of the challenges and questions that arise when studying movements in music performance. »Read more

    Tami Gadir: The Music Technological Body (4.2.19)

    Seminar

    Monday 4 February 2019 // 15:00-16:00 // Fjordgata 1, 2nd floor, 7010 Trondheim // Department of Musicology (ZEB building), Sem Sælands vei 2, 0371 Oslo
    This presentation takes the overarching theme of the seminar series—Women in Music Technology—as a point of departure for conceptual forays into music, technology, and human and non-human material bodies. Beginning with the basic question of how it is that we might understand such concepts—music, technologies, bodies—it will pose several provocations based on empirical and theoretical work on mainly (though not exclusively) Western/European/Anglo-American contemporary musical cultures, with a focus on music technology and gender. »Read more

    Alexandra Murray-Leslie: The Liberation of the Feet: Costuming the Foot for Theatrical Audiovisual Expression As a ‘Gesamtkunstwerk’ (26.11.18)

    Seminar

    Monday 26 November 2018 // 15:00-16:00 // Fjordgata 1, 7010 Trondheim
    Keynote Performance
    Building upon my established history as a performance artist and pop musician, this keynote performance investigates new ways of costuming the foot for theatrical audiovisual expression as a ‘gesamtkunstwerk’—an all-embracing artwork that adopts and makes use of many artforms and disciplines. Through the development of a series of Computer Enhanced Footwear (CEF) prototypes, this keynote demonstrates how this gesamtkunstwerk came together through the intersection of fashionable costume design, pop music, dance choreography, lens-based work, scenography, kinesiology, sound and lighting system design and 3D fabrication practices. »Read more

    Seminar

    Tuesday 30 October 2018 // 15:00-16:00 // Fjordgata 1, 7010 Trondheim
    Why are we in need of diversity in the arts sector, and what forms of diversity are we referring to? How do music spaces like festivals function as inclusionary spaces, for minority groups such as people with disabilities? In my master’s project, I am investigating how diversity and inclusion was implemented as cultural policy during the Norwegian Stoltenberg government period (2005-2013), leading to debates in present time concerning diversity in the cultural sector. »Read more
