Gilles Deleuze. An approach to music: the issues

Tuesday 16 November 2010 - 09:30

Coordination: Pascale Criton

This first session opens the itinerant seminar by presenting different aspects of Gilles Deleuze’s encounter with music. We shall set out the main lines of Deleuze’s approach to music and the historical context of his philosophy from the 1960s (the serial approach, structuralism…): the musical and aural references in his work, the philosophical notions to be found in various texts that deal more particularly with the domain of music, the extensions of this approach in the case of composers who were contemporary with the philosopher.
