Three papers presented at ICOMPA
The Institute for Music Performance Studies (IMPS) of Lucerne School of Music develops methods of music performance analysis and applies them to diverse musical expressions. The “International conference on music performance analysis” (ICOMPA) amalgamated these two approaches. Different interpretations of the jazz standard “Body & Soul” were discussed in Symposium 1; different methods of music performance analysis were debated in Symposium 2. At ICOMPA, members of the IMPS presented their current research projects to an international research community. Three papers were presented: “…mieux citron que jamais” – Thelonious Monk plays “Body & Soul” by Olivier Senn; On measuring and interpreting microtiming by Marc-Antoine Camp and Lorenz Kilchenmann; Transmission or interpretation? – Pierre Boulez’ performances of Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring” by Jürg Huber. All three papers used computer-aided analytical tools, reflected on their application in music performance studies and focussed on different aspects of microtiming.
