Ciência Vitae | ORCIDDoctoral ProjectTitleWith Tiger Claw: Endemic Interpretation of Piano in Baja California Sur from 1880 to 1980Advisor
Co-AdvisorAbstractThe geographical and social conditions in Baja California Sur, Mexico from the end of the 19th century until the 1980’s, determined a particular way of playing different piano repertories. Piano playing and teaching in this region with singular characteristics have been essential for the development of its population social and artistic life. Starting from a detailed ethnographic study, the rescue of scores and recordings and the application of a gender perspective to the whole object of study, the present work offers an interpretative proposal based on what is defined here as endemic interpretation, a proposal that, through the conservation of past practices and the development of their own, provides new aesthetic conceptions that may be applicable to other repertoires. Likewise, the concept of endemic interpretation can help to study and rescue artistic practices of other communities.Research Group: Ethnomusicology and Popular Music Studies
