Project: The head of Orpheus in the mirror. On the interpenetration of poetry and music after 1950

project duration
01-OCT-02 – 30-SEP-04
this piece of musico-literary research focuses on the various forms in which a fusion between poetry and music has been attempted in the recent history of sound (in the West, since 1950). The approach is historic (sound poetry, melopoiesis etc.), as well as analytical and technical (new techniques and technologies), as well as experimental (perception of emotive and cognitive semantics an dphilosophical/sociological (methods of performance, the theory of common roots for music and language).
