Rhythm, flux, fold - Materials: processes and production

Monday 07 February 2011 - 14:00

Université Jean Monnet-Saint-Étienne, ENS Lyon
Coordination: Béatrice Ramaut-Chevassus and Anne Sauvagnargues

The aim is to analyse the modalities and the production of sound material as is practised and theorised by composers and musicologists, by recalling the contributions of Simondon, who shed light on the conception of signal in Deleuze, conceived as an ever provisional individuation, a coupling of forces and materials. This leads to a consideration of music under the aspects of rhythm, flux and fold, from sound material to composition, from noise to cry and the voice.
