One-Day conference by Ulrich Mosch
Sat 21 July 2018, 10.00
Akademie für Tonkunst (Großer Saal)
With Guillemette Bolens, Claudia Jeschke, Ulrich Mosch, Marcus Weiss and participants of the Darmstadt Summer Course
No one would deny that the musician’s body tone plays a decisive part in the act of performance. Any attempt to specify the exact nature of this part, however, leads us into a largely unexplored field. All that is clear is that the body tone is connected to the sonic aspect of music-making and the articulation of the music’s course in time, and also with the physical appearance of the performer. This study day will approach the phenomenon from different perspectives: four lectures will illuminate the different aspects of tone, its role in the physical appearance of artists, in the perceptions of a performing musician, and finally in music-making itself. The afternoon will be devoted to a workshop for instrumentalists in which the role of body tone is explored with reference to different pieces of music.
