Music Theory, G1
I have always been interested in understanding musical phenomena as they relate to human experience. This interest is coupled with a close concern with the ways we think and talk about music in theoretical reflections, especially the philosophical foundations of our thoughts.
I believe that theory is one of the ways in which human beings respond to music, and that this discipline has the responsibility of attempting to conceive and prepare a proper space in our world for music. As a result of this particular focus, all subject-matter that could stimulate or extend my way of understanding music and thinking about it critically became the driving force behind my intellectual endeavors.
During my musicological studies, I became increasingly interested in twentieth-century and contemporary music composers, as they were, and are, both artistically and theoretically engaged in estranging us from what is familiar, musically speaking, and in disclosing new ways of conceiving music. In 2013 I funded the ‘Association for Contemporary Music Study and Promotion’ (www.aspmc.eu). In the future, one of the areas to which I would like to dedicate my theoretical studies is that of compositional thought, theory and processes.
