Current Research Interests
My doctoral research aims to explore how specific musical backgrounds, cultural environments and communities of practice influence the design of new musical instruments. It sounds very clear, isn't it?
Here you can find some more details.
Below some of the questions that are lately buzzing into my mind:
- What can an instrument tell us about the tacit assumptions and expectations that are at the genesis of the design process?
- How specific musical knowledge and values are embedded within a new musical instrument?
- How specific expertises related to different educations, backgrounds and cultural environment influence the design of a new musical instrument?
- Being even more cryptic: how subjectivities are transferred/translated into a new music design?
