Deleuze and music - The ‘Becoming’ of music and creation

Wednesday 09 March 2011 - 09:30

ENS-Paris, Université Sorbonne-Paris IV
Coordination: Danielle Cohen-Levinas

Gilles Deleuze laid stress on the notion of becoming: the expression ‘becoming animal’ [‘devenir animal’], a concept he created, is well known. His writings on music pay lively and constant attention to the phenomenon of creation, and more especially to the writing of music, going beyond its own present. It is thus legitimate, with all due care, to extend the question of becoming to music itself.
