Doctoral Project
For a musical compositional practice between composers
This project is inserted in the context of artistic creation in musical composition. It aims to develop tools, strategies and compositional approaches from the perspective of collaboration and intertextuality when practiced among composers. For this, it reflects through multiple case studies designed from a survey of methodology of compositional practice, which will be the environment of collective practice and research. This research has a strong affinity with action research (Tripp, 2015), when dealing with the question of methodology and improvement of practice, with artistic research (López-Cano & San Cristóbal, 2014), when dealing with questions about practice and musical creation, and with case studies when working with a specific universe to which we want to understand (Yin, 2001). The aim here is to construct a way for the understanding of bridges or connections in the collaboration between composers, for the creation of original works. The group will be composed of 17 (seventeen) people selected among music composers (6, six), letter (2, two) and instrumentalists (9, nine). The researcher will be participating in the group as a composer. Whether in the group, or individually, works will be generated in the following genres: (1) popular song (chords / melody); (2) lyric song; (3) instrumental / acousmatic; and (4) mixed (combining the previous genres).
