CIAC RESEARCHER PARTICIPATES IN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MUSIC STUDIES
On 26 th March 2022, CIAC researcher Rui Travasso presents “New aspects regarding the instrumentalists’ performance” at the 9th International Conference on New Music Concepts (ICNMC). This is a co-authored paper with CIAC researcher Pedro Alves da Veiga and José Alberto Gomes, which seeks to identify key events and aesthetic currents that have influenced musical performance over the last century.
“New aspects regarding the instrumentalists’ performance” addresses the changes in the concept of traditional performance as far as instrumentalists of written music of Western tradition are concerned. These changes have created performative needs and led to the development of new skills on the part of instrumentalists. By becoming artists with a greater multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary breadth, increased creativity in the various performance domains was encouraged.
ICNMC brings together researchers, scientists, engineers and university students to share experiences, ideas and research results on Music Studies; and to debate the practical challenges and solutions to be adopted in this field.
