THE BEING OF THE MUSICAL BEING. THE NOETIC SENSE OF THE MUSICAL SELF

WE ARE THE MUSICAL SCORE

¿Do we think music or music think us?

 

Working our own self, as the ideal ¨field medium¨, as  the essential material for a unique approach towards a New Musical Onticism. 

Is an open_environment_system_source for experimentation and experiencing evolving compositional processes.

 

I created it in CDMX in 2017- 2018  as an idea for  re-thinking, re-resourcing, re-educating, re-forming, re-codifying, the ¨musical being¨  in us. 

 

Is an  open researching and self inquiring methodology, build mainly from the stand point of ourselves, our thinking habits and historical perspectives we had been exposed to.

 

The basics for development  involves working within our sound self, present, imaginary being. 

 

The work depart from the nature of nature; from where the musical ideas as Ideas comes from;  and from this point onward, from a liberating demarcation of denominations, style concepts, prefixed determinist aesthetics  and their models built and evolved through History.

 

It is a state of the art working_space_environment_field; which means, a call for a renewal cultural paradigms and constraints of the psyche, archetypes, reminiscences and traces of thinking, from the past into the present future, and features of  social behavior, thought and autonomy, self knowledge and understanding.

 

The Program is open to anyone (non artist included!) who are interested in the compositional processes, evoking within ourselves experiences and awareness of self.

¨I¨  a compositional process with Fabian Rangel

for Violin and Extended DrumSet Percussion

 

¨I¨ is the composition resulting from self questioning, sensory experiencing of self state, self awareness, perception and consciousness of the inner and outer environment. It is the complex compound opening and  answering, to those inner questions resulting from a working compositional process, integrated by philosophical ideas, aesthetic researching and study, within the classical and contemporary musical tradition, experimental music orientation, Creative Music and Music Improvisation.

 

The working process with Fabian Rangel, violinist and music student at ESM in Mexico City, expands beyond the complex world of music itself, and  from the academical stand point of view. To begin with, the creative workshop started from the inner impulse, a sense of sound, vibration of the body and its temperature;  as a spring of generative elements nurturing the whole process, from its beginning to its end. The revealed implications involved in the process, brought to life complex personality problems to be resolved, through a sort of inner treatment in itself.   

 

¨I¨,  has been composed departing from the idea of  natural properties in the body of Fabian. As music, it has been conceived like a plasma graphic score, as a self container of textural elements, that evolves into modules of mixed material  of traditional music notation subjects. Improvisation plays a basic role, and as a tool for interlacing the 4 parts of the whole work.

 

The work is well organized  and supported by a symbol key code notation, for the conceptual and performance of the materials. And it offers the possibility to be performed as a violin and drum set duo, or as a large string and percussion ensemble.

Compositional Process with Diego Villaseñor 2018-2019

The work with has started from diverse appreciations and particular perspectives, questions and appropriations, and from co-creative interactions that are expressed in several and very diverse levels. This process is (largely) the result and experiment on concepts developed in my Philosophy thesis A Thought Exploration, around the functioning of thought and meaning. The TALLER ABIERTO has definitively become the "ideal field medium" for work around ideas and concepts of nature research, the process is not the work, poetics and materiality, among others. (D. V.)
