Event in English and German.
The event sets out to explore the phenomenon of polyphony in contemporary music as a practice of organising heterogeneous elements through means of dissociation and association. In a large part of contemporary experimental music production, regardless of their stylistic or aesthetic preconditions, a significant heterogeneity of the basic compositional materials seems to be prevalent, ranging from conventionally musical or extramusical elements to often not clearly classifiable actions or objects. The resulting phenomenal multifariousness of such approaches is therefore often described in intrinsically non-musical terms like intermediality or performativity. However, the ways of interrelating and interpenetrating the, at times, extremely diverse layers of materiality can oftentimes also be traced back to remnants of the inherently musical techniques of traditional polyphony and counterpoint. Their underlying reference systems, in turn, are essentially based on the subtle interplay of associating and dissociating musical elements in order to establish simultaneous, perceivable orders of both discrete and global contexts. Hence, the seemingly purely artistic and aesthetic issue of polyphonic organisation can easily be tied in with a broader social and philosophical perspective on questions like the interrelation between the individual and the collective, between independence and interdependence, as well as its conscious modelling in artistic production and perception processes.09:30 Welcome/Introduction
