June 18, 2014.
Ircam, Stravinsky Room.
[Most presentations will be in French]
Coordination : Nicolas Donin and the Gemme Team

Many contemporary composers frequently refer to “gesture” as a core concept within their music.  “Gesture” has several meanings which are context-dependent: from instrumental gesture (and/in technology) to metaphores of “energy”, “shaping” or “event”.  The gestural dimension in music has become a key component of the current aesthetic and theoretical scene.  However it would be fair to say that gesture has in fact returned to its earlier prominence.  Various experiments in notation, playing techniques, improvisation and technology had already occurred in the 60s and 70s and might benefit from renewed scrutiny.  Rediscovering past approaches to gesture may not only help us to understand some underlying assumptions in current music, but also to sharpen our vision of new directions in the exploration of the body-text-instrument nexus.

Speakers: Anne-Sylvie Barthel, Grégory Beller, Benjamin Carat, Pascal Decroupet, Nicolas Donin, Richard Dubelski (sous réserve), Maxime Echardour, François-Xavier Féron, Francesco Filidei, Jérémie Garcia, Laurent Feneyrou, Ariane Jessulat, Philippe Leroux, Michelle Magalhaes, Jean-François Trubert.
