..will shed light on the question of music between digital soundcreation and classical composition and will contain two individual lectures.
"Inside the high velocity cloud" and "Breath"
"The history of every art form has critical periods in which the particular form strains after effects which can be easily achieved only with a changed technical standard, that is to say, in a new art form."
As Walter Benjamin notes in his iconic essay, "The work of art in the age of mechanical reproduction" (1936), every art form makes demands which strongly challenge its own limitations. Artists use methods which seem, at least in retrospect, to strive toward new technologies that seem more naturally suited to this particular artistic practice.
Sidney Corbett is Professor for composition at University of Music and Performing Arts Mannheim and Philipp Ludwig Stangl is Professor for audiovisual arts at University of Music and Performing Arts Mannheim.
The Music Research Series is designed to help postgraduate students advance their research and careers. The events stimulate exchange, hones skills, facilitates the creation of professional networks and helps to consolidate the department’s postgraduate community, all over a glass of wine! Attendance is strongly recommended for all postgraduate students (MA, MMus and PGR) in Music but of course undergraduates, music researchers, and visitors from across the college and the community are also most welcome to these public lectures.
