This project seeks to reinterpret the borders between composition and performance. It suggests a new understanding of the relation between post-war modernism and the late romantic tradition, viewing this topic as inextricably tied to questions of performativity.
The primary objective of the project is to produce knowledge about the significance of sound and sound processes by researching ways of "knowing through sound" and agency related to sonic environments, sound production and listening processes.
This project aims to throw light upon both aesthetic and therapeutic/prophylactic dimensions of musical meaning; the primary objective being to increase our awareness and understanding of the positive powers of music in everyday life, as well as in crisis.
This project focuses on how gender is significantly influenced by music, with specific emphasis placed upon the transcultural aspects of popular music in contemporary societies.
The Fiddle Volumes contain 3862 transcriptions of traditional Norwegian fiddle tunes, and a number of articles, all available at this website.
