Towards a virtuous circle - Third Cycle artistic research in the conservatoire as creative dialogue, critical reflection and discipline development
Summary, in English
After an introduction to how artistic research programmes may be a possible instigator of creative dialogue, critical reflection and discipline development, this session comprises three case descriptions of PhD projects which are all influential in the shaping of tomorrow’s 1st and 2nd cycle conservatoire training. The PhD candidates are all former students at our academy who combine high-ranking artistic careers with doctoral studies and teaching in HME. Their projects investigate and develop fundamental issues in Western European art music as a cultural practice; relationships to (i) written scores, improvisation and instruments, (ii) performance practices and (iii) audiences. In simultaneous contact with students, professional musical practice and contemporary artistic research, they all relate to questions such as: What roles can be played by professional musicians of tomorrow? How will they relate to life long learning and entrepreneurship on the open media market?
As living examples of how the interrelationship between cycles can be enacted, the three presentations picture inspirational as well as disturbing consequences of 3rd cycle artistic research and point to how these may be used for the development of a coherent structure of acquisition (1st cycle) – application (2nd cycle) – generation of new knowledge (3rd cycle) in HME.
