Abstract

Artiklen tager afsæt i en jazz duo med to professionelle musikere – en pianist og artiklens forfatter på saxofon. Vi skaber musikken gennem improvisation i sammenfiltringer med grafisk notation, som jeg løbende udvikler og nedtegner som grafisk noterede partiturer. I min undersøgelse er duoen udvidet med endnu en saxofonist. Med en performativ forskningstilgang og en performativ opfattelse af musik lader jeg mig guide af effekter af materialiteter som eksempelvis musikinstrumenter og selve musikken i tid og rum, samtidig med at jeg er opmærksom på affekter. Begrebet intra-aktion fra Barads teori om posthumanistisk performativitet tænker jeg sammen med min genererede empiri i en analyse, der bygger på agential realisme. Forskningsspørgsmålet er følgende:
Hvordan intra-agerer menneskelige og ikke-menneskelige materialiteter i en grafisk notations tilblivelser henover 1,5 år, når musikken ikke er et værk, der definerer, hvad vi skal lære, men forstås som iterativ intra-aktion, der gør noget med os og verden, mens vi lærer? I stedet for at betragte musik som et objekt eller den musikalske aktivitet som rettet mod en performance sigter denne undersøgelse på at være et bidrag til, at vi kan lære og sanse i iterative intra-aktioner sammen med musikkens uudtømmelige muligheder for tilblivelser.

English abstract

To learn with becomings of graphic notation in music as iterative intra-action
The article takes as its starting point a jazz duo with two professional musicians – a pianist and this article’s author on saxophone. We create the music through improvisation in entanglements with graphic notation, which I continuously develop and design as graphically notated scores. In my study, the duo was expanded with yet another saxophonist. With a performative research approach and a performative perception of music, I let myself be guided by the effects of materialities such as musical instruments and the music itself in time and space, while being aware of affects. I think with the concept of intra-action from Barad’s theory of posthumanist performativity together with my generated empirics in an analysis based on agential realism. The research question is as follows: How do human and non-human materialities intra-act in the becomings of a graphic notation over 1.5 years, when music is not a work af art that defines what we are to learn, but is understood as iterative intra-action that does something with us and the world while we learn? Instead of considering music as an object or considering musical activity as directed towards a performance, this study aims to be a contribution to our ability to learn and sense in iterative intra-actions together with music’s inexhaustible possibilities for becomings.
