Viva Voce of the Artistic Research Project “Capto Musicae”
Research fellow Øystein Elle is concluding his Artistic Research Project “Capto Musicae” with a Viva Voce on Saturday November 18th 2017 at 12 am at Norwegian Theatre Academy, Østfold University College, Campus Fredrikstad.
The event is free of charge. Guests are asked to use the upper main entrance/by “Servicetorget” where someone will meet you.
The members of the assessment committee are:
Professor Emeritus at Norwegian Academy of Music, Bjørn Kruse (1. Opponent)
Head of directing programme at the Danish National School of Performing Arts, Inger Eilersen (2. Opponent)
Associate Professor at Norwegian Theatre Academy, Electa Behrens (Chair of the committee)
Artistic director of the scenography department at NTA, Professor Serge von Arx, will lead the Viva Voce.
Øystein Elle`s artistic research project “Capto Musicae – Creating Sonic and Musical Theatre in a Contemporary Artistic Context” explores possibilities for music theatre in the intersection between concert, performance art/visual art and theatre via the compositional tool of extended vocal practice, in conjunction with reworks of textual material; “extended text work.”
The context of his artistic research is historically grounded in the baroque, in terms of musical as well as in visual aesthetics; in twentieth-century Western avant-garde; in experimental approaches to the voice in performance; as well as the singing voice within the musical genres of heavy rock, post-punk, and noise. Capto Musicae operates as a dialogue between music and theatre; the project works with, as well as responds to, the histories of both disciplines. Elle`s methodology is situated in theatre, moving equally between this and music.
