Kitano, Hsuan Chang 張璿 博士後研究
This paper discusses strategies and methodologies for conducting interdisciplinary and intercultural projects as executed through Project Cadenzas, a new program based in research and performance and designed to articulate and explore expression and creativity while also reflecting traditional culture contexts through musical performance. Topics researched include the variance in the tuning system of the Western and Eastern traditions, while analyzed topics include the processes involved in interpreting different notation system, developing editions, and establishing performance conventions. The research undertaken through Project Cadenzas provided interdisciplinary insights and culminated in lectures and recitals whose topics and programs explored the relationships between music and mathematics, music and literature, and performance on music studies and dance.
