PhD defense

December 2nd, 2014 (16h15)

On Tuesday December 2nd at 16h15, at the Academiegebouw Leiden, Rapenburg 73, docARTES-PhD candidate Juan Parra Cancino publicly defended his thesis: Towards a Performance Practice in Computer Music.

The exposition of this thesis takes advantage of the virtual platform provided by the research catalogue (www.researchcatalogue.net), which enables the presentation of contexts, processes, results and reflections of the research conducted in both the more traditional written form, as well as in the audio visual domain. In doing so, the invitation is for a de-hierarchisation of the modes of presentation of traditional academic research and for the engagement in a more integral reading (and listening, and seeing) of the whole body of research.

The supervising team consists of:

Prof. Frans de Ruiter (1st promotor), Leiden University
Prof. Richard Barrett (2nd promotor), Instituut voor Sonologie, Koninklijk Conservatorium Den Haag
Dr. Marcel Cobussen (co-promotor), Leiden University
