Sound, Music and the Moving-Thinking Body

Editor(s): Osvaldo Glieca, Marilyn Wyers
Contributors: Helen Julia Minors, Mark Wraith, Marilyn Wyers, Jeremy Peyton Jones, Magnus Andersson, Stefan Ostersjo,

Book Description

It has long been known that practicing musicians and dancers draw upon interdisciplinary relationships between sound and movement to inform their work and that many performance arts educators apply these relationships in working with aspiring composers, choreographers and performers. However, most material on the subject has been, to this point, relegated to single chapters in books and journal articles. Now, Sound, Music and the Moving-Thinking Body brings together the diverse topics researchers and practitioners across the sector are exploring, and raises issues concerning the collaborative aspects of creating and performing new work.

Sound, Music and the Moving-Thinking Body is a result of the Composer, Choreographer and Performer Collaboration Conference of Contemporary Music and Dance/Movement 2012 hosted by the Institute of Musical Research, Senate House, University of London, and the Department of Music at Goldsmiths, University of London.
