In 'Here and Now', music performers, trainers, teachers, and thinkers meet to exchange concepts, experiences and perspectives dealing with the particular moment of being on stage. The central topics are self-awareness, presence and the state of 'flow' in music performance.
Three specific perspectives are addressed: musical performance practices from various traditions, hands-on training for the ‘flow’ state and the dialogue with the psychology and philosophy of awareness and ‘enaction’.
Guest speakers are:
- Erik Myin, Philosopher, Department of Philosophy, University of Antwerp (BE)
- Frank Heckman, Professor of Sustainable Performance, Codarts Rotterdam (NL)
- Pandit Dhruba Ghosh, North Indian (Hindustani) classical musician, principal at Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mumbay (IN)
