Lecture by Giuseppe Gavazza: Let’s dense! Densité, Entropie, Composition: How can sounds inhabit a space?

We will have the pleasure and honor of receiving Giuseppe Gavazza who is giving a lecture entitled "Let’s dense! Densité, Entropie, Composition: How can sounds inhabit a space?" as part of the "Sound Atmospheres (and closed spaces)" course on Monday April 15th, 2024 from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in room E.

Presentation: The incipit was the question: “Since we have mentioned a symphony orchestra-how about the concept of density in music?” ". In the search for answers, I will propose a few pieces of music chosen by freely following the thread of related principles: entropy as a measure of intensity and the act of composing as an assembly of multiplicities. The principle of musical sequence (cadence) will be used to propose a series of dualities such as: organized/disorganized, harmonic/disharmonic, consonant/dissonant, noise/silence, pleasant/unpleasant...

Based on a phenomenology of musical interpretation that I conceive with an ecological posture, the choice of pieces will be made under the consideration that listening embodies an organic action of a sound/musical body which encompasses the performers (in their broadest sense), space and listeners. And that living can be interpreted as: filling, animating, occupying, living, resonating, dancing…
