Research and Development

‘Building Bridges to the Community’ aimed to create and offer professional development opportunities in the media, multimedia and graphic design areas, with a European dimension. Assuming the need to actively involve adult students and other with reduced access in this domain, the network promoted effective support for the process. The specificity of the network is that it consists of small-scale educational institutions in small countries with impact in its regions.

This project aims to objectively analyze the gesture of percussion performance and deeply understand its narrative content. Previous research has shown a strong correlation between gesture, sound and musical perception. Investigators concluded that the visual component in musical performance has influence in the communication and relationship between the performers and their audience, interfering on musicality and expressivity. In a communicative character and sensorial contents wise, the music becomes before gesture a complete narrative.

This project focuses on the resynthesis of Inharmonique (1977) by Jean-Claude Risset, a mixed electroacoustic work existing as a fixed medium (original tape and its digital recordings). So, as the main aim is to establish a draft version for real-time performance of this work, we also wish to propose reviewing its documentation.
