New Inclusivity - A search for diversity in comtemporary music

Inclusivity: ‘the non-exclusion of members or participants on grounds of gender, race, social class, sexual preference, disability, etc.’

In a broader context, this term can also be expanded to the inclusivity of artistic disciplines, artists and artistic researchers focusing on different aspects of the contemporary music scene.

In this seminar, the focus lies on the creative process within different artistic and performative disciplines, with a specific emphasis on diversity and diversification. The research projects currently being undertaken in the research group ‘Creation’ (KCA) deal with ethnomusicology in contemporary performance practice, gender-related issues in new music, the use of a variety of multimedia sources, instant composing and improvisation, etc., and are representative of the modern-day music scene.
