The Call for Proposals for EPARM 2015 is now open. Deadline: 6th March.
Artistic research in music is rooted in practice; its questions and answers arise from musical practice and, ideally, should feed back into this practice to enhance it for the whole community of musical practitioners. This conference seeks to identify, explore and encourage examples where this can be seen to take place.
Submissions are invited in written, audio or video format or any combination of these.
Proposals should address one or more of the following questions:
• Do I integrate findings of my artistic research in my own artistic practice – including teaching practice – and if so, how?
• Who are the peers I am relating to in my own artistic research project, and how do I relate to them? And what is the impact of this relationship with peers?
• Can I provide convincing examples of artistic research where it is very obvious that the artistic material itself makes the argument?
• Can I provide any evidence from my own experience that music, and our general understanding of it, can be transformed by the outputs of artistic research? And if so, are the effects of such transformation the same as, or different from, those of a purely artistic performance?
Proposals may fall under one or more of the following four headings:
• An artistic research project currently in progress that is generating artistically relevant insights for the researcher, with thoughts as to how these might have a longer-term impact on his or her musical practice.
• Outputs from a completed or well-advanced artistic research project that can be shown to be having a lasting impact on the researcher’s own musical practice.
• Outputs from a completed or well-advanced artistic research project that can be shown to be having an impact on the subject areas, research questions or research methods used by other researcher(s).
• Outputs from a completed or well-advanced artistic research project that can be shown to be having an impact on the musical practice of people other than the researcher(s).
