Masterclass led by Paulo de Assis at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, London

Research Masterclass for Doctoral and Master’s Students
Sponsored by the Cambridge Centre for Musical Performance Studies, Institute of Musical Research, and Guildhall School of Music & Drama

Lecture Recital Room, Guildhall School of Music & Drama, Silk Street, London EC2Y 8DT

A new series of ‘Research Masterclasses’, coordinated by Prof. John Rink (Cambridge University) is being launched for music postgraduates, especially those working in practice-based research and in performance studies.
The first event in the series was held on Monday 28 November, led Paulo de Assis (ERC Principal Investigator, Orpheus Institute; Visiting Fellow, Cambridge Centre for Musical Performance Studies) and featured the work of two students: Naomi Woo (University of Cambridge) and Louise Cournarie (Royal Academy of Music).

Honours Class at Leiden University

Inspired by Gilles Deleuze’s Postscript on the Societies of Control, Nietzsche’s second Untimely Meditation, and Jacques Rancière’s Emancipated Spectator, Paulo de Assis unravels some of the dominant power relations affecting the performance of Western music, proposing liberating avenues for an emancipated performer—someone who, based upon the notion of ‘dissensus’, operates a redistribution of the sensible.

The guest lecture will take place today, 17.15, at the Lipsius Building, Cleveringaplaats 1, 2311 Leiden (NL).

The Honours Class–witht he overall title Music and Society: The Role of Music in Society through History, from Plato to Pussy Riot—is organised by Marcel Cobussen and Hafez Ismaili M’hamdi.
