Una proposta di analisi performativa: intorno alle voci del compositore e del performer che svolge la propria pratica artistica come ricerca
Nowadays, the reflections on the relationship between analysis and music performance are objects of an open debate in musicology, artistic research and performance studies.
The approach of the performative analysis in this study aims to contribute to the challenges (which are also characteristics) of the research in arts. Its languages are projected towards the evolution of some terms, in respect of the present philosophical and aesthetical context; its methods cannot marginalize the voice of the performers and their desire to communicate and share knowledge about the performance from their own creative experience conducted as artistic research.
By respecting the authenticity of all the roles, the goal is to bring out the voices (and all the related challenges) that occur in the production of a score and its analysis as a spatial-temporal-sound phenomenon: the composer, who is the creator, and the performer, who is the co-creator. The voice of the performer, in particular, comes out as a scholar-researcher when the aim implies both the creation of a music performance (the proper language of the art) and the creation of knowledge (the verbal meta-language) through a method based on a phenomeno- logical observation.
This work is the result of a collaboration between three musicians, the composer, Carla Rebora, the pianist Alessandra Ammara, and the author of this article, pianist and artist-researcher.
