Music, Humans, and Machines
We invite to send proposals that critically explore the relationship between musicians and their musical instruments, tools, and utensils by multiple perspectives, covering an extended range of artistic experiences, from historically informed performance to contemporary and electroacoustic music creation.
docARTES graduate Nicoleta Paraschivescu (Leiden University, 2015) recently released a new CD which is the artistic outcome of her research on Paisiello's Partimenti. The recording is meant to be the musical complement to the book Paisiellos Partimenti: Wege zu einem praxisbezogenen Verständnis (SCBS 6) soon to be published by Schwabe Verlag in Basel.
We welcome 11 new doctoral students who will start the docARTES programme. They were selected out of 42 applicants. The group is again very international with nine different nationalities. The topics are ranging from interpretation and composition over phrasing to the cello in late-nineteenth-century France.

In 2017 docARTES launched its new website with improved functionality, design and navigation. The website also contains new sections and updated content.
In February 2017 docARTES students will organize their yearly conference. The Orpheus Doctoral Conference 2017, Traditions-Transitions, will explore how different modes of relationships between past and present affect musical performance practice and composition. Further, practitioners and researchers from the fields of music and social sciences will draw on Eric Hobsbawm’s notion of “invented traditions”, examining how traditions are forged, broken or interrupted and how they might be used as sources of renewal.
