New EU-Project Development Period – University of Oslo

I am now in a new period of developing a EU-prestigious project dealing with the ‘musicalized body’ in a mediatized context. The research objective will involve considering how audiovisual representations (as in pop videos) impact on our cultures and societies. A prime concern of mine is to develop a vocabulary within musicology for accounting for deterritorialized identity politics that have implications for environmental, political, and economic ecological systems. Analyzing the aesthetics of innovative music technologies, and how they trigger the structuring of human movement through dance is perfectly illustrated by one of my favorite groups today, Disclosure. Check this video of ‘Control’. The track was released in 2012.
