Framed by papers from Professor Eric Clarke (University of Oxford) and Dr Jason Toynbee (Open University), this Royal Musical Association (RMA) Study Day will bring together researchers investigating the creative process in music from diverse disciplines, including sociology, ethnomusicology, psychology and anthropology, with the aim of discussing recent developments in the study of musical action, interaction, dynamism and change.
This concern to understand musical workings rather than the musical work - music as verb rather than noun - reflects a broader performative shift in musicology over the past thirty years. With this turn, however, have emerged various epistemological and methodological challenges. How can we make sense of music when there remain many hurdles to our measuring, accounting for and interpreting music and musical experience in its all changeability and flux?
This study day will provide a forum for academics and postgraduate students to present their research and to discuss the potential challenges and advantages of their approaches from a number of interdisciplinary viewpoints.
