• Reflection through sound

  • Context

  • Background info: how have we used sound as a means of reflection sofar?

  • another regime…

  • Fonokolab and sound reflection

  • Fonokolab at AFSNIT I.

    Sound+collaboration=LEARNING

  • What is music?

  • How do we teach music?

  • Transition

  • Language, speech

  • The collective

  • three layers

  • A seemingly difficult question with a (maybe provocatively) simple answer!

  • What are we doing when we are talking about what is music, today?

  • Is music something that is already there?

  • Music = time!

  • The quantisation regime

  • The individualistic regime

  • In the old days…

  • In postindustrial societies

  • Is music the right place for reflection through sound?

  • Speech as a storage facility

  • the basic sound body

  • the character

  • the movement

  • Music is what we define as music.

  • Ranciere: regime to identify art as art. Different regimes through different times

  • Same thing goes for music: we define music according to the current regime, or paradigma or conceptual framework

  • We start by explaining what is a chord, a scale and a rhythm

  • We basically presume we are talking about something that is already there

  • A number of acoustic phenomena that can be described by rules of physics

  • So we have found a way to describe sound as something that is already there, but is that the same as to say that music is?

  • Music understood as a description of materials, ignoring it as a temporal phenomenon

  • Even when we describe the temporal aspects of music, we do it through non-temporal concepts,

  • We talk about measures, about rhythm in the terms of mathematical relationships.

  • With these descriptions, we are basically happy, because we don’t have to take the most important, and most difficultly grasped aspect into consideration:

  • Music is time!

  • Scientistic approach, positivistic.

  • Enhanced in ‘modernism’, holocaust, universalism, dehumanisation because the human factor is unpredictable, leads to evil.

  • The artist as a genious

  • A unique person creating a unique masterpiece to be consumed by an anonymous mass of individuals

  • The individualistic and quantitavistc regimes of identifying musique…

  • … Have marked music education making it a place of reproduction of its own logic

  • What happens when music education is appified?

  • Take the example of garageband, - praised by teachers and what we call music professionals

  • It is more and more obvious that code is power.

  • Our digital lives, ie our lives as such, are guided by algorithms controlled by tech nerds. No offense

  • We need to take control over code!

  • The quantification and individualistic regimes have gradually removed music as our means of expression through sound

  • and with the recent ‘advances’ in technology this gap is getting larger and larger.

  • Did you ever think of speech as a place that we can store information about what is around us and how we perceive it? Did it strike you that there is no author of our spoken language?

  • Art is everywhere but irrelevant. When art was invented, it was the place for development. Now tech has the leading role in cultural development

  • We have increasingly focused on music as something that can be described through material a quantifiable, scientistic and individualistic regime

  • have brought us further and furhter using music as a means to reflect through sound

  • for some, it still is… do we have a music culture where we are all both making and using music? now making music is the business of an elite of specialists

  • Spoken language as a storage facility

  • Spoken language is a collective effort
