Doctoral Project
Collaborative recomposition: performance expansion through processes of musical co-creation

This research project presents a proposal of expansion of the role of performance in the classical music context, through creation based on pre-existent compositions, in collaboration with brazilian composers. Oriented by practice-based methodologies and in reconfigurations of the notion of musical work and performance (Assis, 2018); structured by the concept of intertextuality and musical rewriting (Kristeva, 1969; Penha, 2010); using methodologies from the Archeology of Knowledge (Foucault, 1969), from collaborative autoethnography (Chang et al., 2013) and creative collaboration (John-Steiner, 2000), we will accomplish at least four case studies of musical co-creation.
