Concert Design: An investigation into the potential of Classical Concerts as creatively designed events
The thesis develops the notion of Concert Design as a creative approach to designing embodied, aesthetic and communicative concert performances. Concert Design is a concept including six principles of Concert Design that may provide inspiration, shared terminologies and methods applicable in the Concert Design Process.
The PhD committee evaluating the dissertation are:
- Professor Jan Pries-Heje, Roskilde University (chair)
- Research professor Dorita M. Hannah, University of Tasmania & Aalto University
- Associate Professor Morten Søndergaard, Aalborg University.
The defense will take place at the Royal Danish Academy of Music in the New Hall, Rosenørns Allé 22, 1970 Frederiksberg C and will include a small original concert performance as an illustration of some of the practical implications of the research project.
Everyone is invited for a small reception in the canteen at the Royal Danish Music Conservatory after the defense.
The dissertation can be downloaded here and will be available as a reading copy at the defense.
