On Music and Spatiality : Spatialization as a vehicle towards a chimærical space

Detta är en Master-uppsats från Kungl. Musikhögskolan/Institutionen för komposition, dirigering och musikteori

Sammanfattning: According to Kierkegaard it is through our sense of hearing that we can make this journey within, “Gradually, then, hearing became my most cherished sense, for just as the voice is the disclosure of inwardness incommensurable with the exterior, so the ear is the instrument that apprehends this inwardness, hearing the sense by which it is appropriated.”[1] The music is an invitation to all participants to become wanderers. An invitation to step into the music and by doing that, stepping into one’s own imagination on a journey within. This is a double movement similar to what French philosopher Roland Barthes (1915–1980) described: a movement which bears forward and at the same time back to somewhere in oneself.[2] On another note, the Italian writer Italo Calvino (1923–1985) wrote, that “imagination is a world of potentialities that no single work will successfully enact.”[3] Experiences have the potentiality to cause profound changes within a person. In his book The Poetics of Space[4] the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard (1884–1962) wrote that to imagine wandering in the desert is to change space, and as a consequence to change oneself; in his words, “for we do not change place. We change our nature.”[5]   [1] Kierkegaard, Søren, Either/Or: a fragment of life, Penguin, London, 1992, p. 3.
