Reflections on time structures in contemporary composition and media settings
Both guests join us from the University of Music and Performing Arts Mannheim, where Sidney Corbett is Professor of Composition and Philipp Ludwig Stangl is Professor of Audiovisual Arts.
Sidney Corbett - Window Technique as a method for managing proportion in musical composition: One of the central questions in my music, and I suppose in any music, is the use and control of temporal relations. As Mozart said, time is the most difficult of all musical questions. Much of our decision making in structuring time is of course a question of preference and is thus also a question of what is often referred to as "feel“, or "taste“. But at least in my work there are technical methods I employ which give me tools I can use in dealing with these issues.
Philipp Ludwig Stangl - Mapping the in(de)finite: The montage of sonic and cinematographic objects are central to any concept of time-based intermedia composition: not only the interdependencies but also the focus on the unique "operating time“ of different media are at the core of synchronization. By appropriating Jean-Luc Godard and Sergei Eisenstein the lecture sheds light on distinct approaches of sound, image and performance in audiovisual projects.
