Research Pavilion in Venice: Marina Cyrino: “…ar que vibra, corpos que pulsam”
Vibrating air, pulsating bodies: transformations of flute practices in a multimodal collaborative context
In order to investigate transformations of the flute–flutist dynamic relation, Marina Cyrino explores and creates musical practices and performances that combine music with other art forms. Collaboration is the central method of investigating how the flute–flutist is contaminated by humans and non-humans – objects, spaces, processes, devices, beings – that act and bring different agencies that produce visible transformations in the familiar body-at-play, allowing the exploration of the flute playing in transformative ways.
In connection with the Uniarts Helsinki Research Pavilion in Venice, the Sibelius Academy is organising a Nordic research symposium "Encounters, Discussions, Experimentations: Art, Research and Artistic Research in Music” together with its partners, the Arne Nordheim Centre for Artistic Research at the Norwegian Music Academy and the Academy of Music and Drama at the University of Gothenburg. The two-day event focuses on music and the multifaceted interrelationships between music and research, as well as artistic research in music. One of the aims of the event is to generate Nordic collaboration to foster the planning and organising of research symposia/conferences and research projects as well as publications.
The Research Pavilion is created and hosted by Uniarts Helsinki, and realized together with the Norwegian Artistic Research Programme and the Swedish Art Universities’ collaboration Konstex in co-operation with the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and Zurich University of the Arts.
