Seminar «Electronic Audio Technologies — Instrumentation for Composition Practice»
On Wednesday, December 25, at 13:00 in the Malachite Hall of the Russian Institute for the History of the Arts, will be held a Seminar “Electronic Audio Technologies — Instrumentation for Composition Practice”.
For musical art, as a processual continuum, which exists and realized in time, the question of its organization, implementation, and perception is obviously one of the fundamental issues. Music is a powerful emotional stimulus that can change our relationship with time, its phonographic fabric represents in itself a complex structure, the many different parameters of which can, in one way or another, affect the perception of its chronology. The possibilities for modeling the all elements of the phonographic text without exception by means of control and regulation of the values of perceived objective and subjective time, absolute and relative perceptions of this code, fundamentally changed our idea of the very nature of the artistic process in audial art.
The reports contain reflections on the mystery of the phenomenology of time, the possibilities for changing and controlling its flowing by the technique of composition of musical fabric. A more complicated, multifaceted interpretation of the aspects of the issue under consideration, associated with the advent of electronic audio technologies, as a powerful creative palette in the practice of musical art, is demonstrated.
Each attribute of sound perception, such as pitch, timbre, volume, duration, will be proposed to be considered as a single fundamental system of different aspects of the same nature – perception of time.
The principal speaker and presenter is Maxim Ivanovich Karpets, composer, Ph.D. in art history, senior research scientist, Department of Organology, Russian Institute for the History of Arts. Marina Adolfovna Sen, research scientist, Department of Organology, Russian Institute for the History of Arts will also take part in the seminar.
All are invited to attend.
