Paulo de Assis Orpheus Research Centre in Music
In a process that was particularly enhanced in the 20th century, the performance of musical ‘works’ became a complex articulation of different types of data, information and knowledge...More than aiming at simply (re)creating or (re)producing a 'work' through performance, what is at stake in this research project are processes that constitute musical 'things' as objects for thought through performative devices

In my research work my concern is an embodied approach to a place.  A viewer and author are both in motion. As a method, I have used walking, not only to comprehend a place but also as a medium to transform the production of place. For that purpose I use two concepts: location and movement.


Advocacy Tools
Break Out Group 4
The need to make the voices of researchers in the arts and design fields heard has never been more pressing. As resources across Europe shrink, the significance of our work needs to be emphasized. In this Break Out session, new approaches for lobbying to build allegiances across national borders will be put forward through presentation and discussion.
