The AEC European Platform for Artistic Research in Music (EPARM) forum 2016 took place at the Conservatorio di Musica "A. Pedrollo" in Vicenza, Italy, from 20 to 22 April 2016 in cooperation with RAMI, the Italian Association of Artistic Research in Music.

The EPARM preparatory Working group is in charge of organizing the AEC Annual EPARM meeting (Forum and Conference).  The Working Group is formed by coopting active individuals in the relevant field of specialization within AEC member institutions. Proactivity, as well as geographical and gender balances are the applied criteria to guarantee the diverse and dynamic character of the group, who should ideally recreate the diversity of AEC members institutions.

Working Group Members:
Peter Dejans - Chair (Orpheus Institute Ghent)
Leonella Grasso Caprioli (Conservatorio di Vicenza)
Kevin Voets (Artesis Plantijn Hogeschool Antwerpen)
Henrik Frisk (Royal College of Music Stockholm)

 The AEC is glad to announce the next gathering of European Platform for Artistic Research in Music (EPARM), which will take place at the Conservatorio di Musica "A. Pedrollo", Vicenza (Italy), on 20-22 April 2016.
 
The structure of the EPARM Forum 2016
This year the EPARM event takes the shape of Forum model, as already experienced in Stockholm in 2014 and will focus on major themes proposed in the EPARM Conference in  Graz last year. After the opening evening, which will feature the keynote speech of the former Member of the European Parliament and Italian Minister On. Luigi Berlinguer, on the second day there will be plenty of occasions for discussions and exchanges on topics strictly related to artistic research, while last day will be dedicated to a Round Table session with RAMI (the Association for the Artistic Research in Music in Italy), where inter-institutional and interdisciplinary partnership and collaboration models, crucial for the development of artistic research, will be discussed.
 
In-depth discussion
On Thursday, the sessions will feature brief introductory presentations which will prepare the floor to indepth discussions on four hot topics in the agenda for the development of Artistic Research (AR):

Methodology: which methodological paradigms have been generated within AR? Which are the related issues raising from practical experiences, some of which already in place since a decade?

Sources and Archives: an informed access to sources by musician-researchers and an efficient service delivered by libraries are necessary requirements for the development of AR. How to deal with problems related to the conservation of the heritage and the digital dematerialization of the sources within a new relationship between users and historical documents?

Criteria: development and implementation of a body of reference criteria for AR in music - exchange of experiences and good practicies

Impact as a prominent element in the valorization of AR: impact on the higher music education environment, on the artistic developments in the field, on new modes of knowledge transmission

 
Round table discussion – with RAMI
On Friday, an international panel of experts will debate on the theme “From networking activities to inter-institutional cooperation: the evolution of the higher music education system towards the creation of a "research environment" able to shape a European musician looking to the future. Best practice examples, international models, strategies and shared foresight on goals to developing infrastructures for AR.”
 
Considering the institutional charachter of the topics which will be addressed by the keynote speaker and the round table discussion, we warmly encourage institutional leaders, managers and directors to join the forum in order to engage in a fruitful debate on this strategic topics together with delegates representing research departments and research activities in higher music education institutions.
 
Looking forward to meeting you in Vicenza
 
Best Regards
 
The AEC EPARM Preparatory Working Group

È con piacere che annunciamo il secondo EPARM Forum, che si terrà in Italia presso il Conservatorio di Vicenza dal 20 al 22 aprile 2016.
 
Struttura dell’EPARM Forum 2016
Quest’anno la piattaforma AEC sulla ricerca artistica in musica EPARM si svolgerà in forma di Forum, come già sperimentato nell’edizione di Stoccolma 2014 e tratterà i temi più rilevanti proposti durante la Conferenza EPARM svoltasi a Graz lo scorso anno. Dopo una prima giornata dedicata all’apertura dei lavori che vedrà come relatore principale l’ex deputato europeo e Ministro On. Luigi Berlinguer, nel secondo giorno si concentreranno i momenti di discussione e confronto, mentre nell’ultima giornata si svolgerà una Tavola Rotonda in collaborazione con RAMI (Associazione per la Ricerca Artistica Musicale in Italia) dedicata ad un approfondimento sui modelli di partnership e collaborazioni interdisciplinari ed interistituzionali, legate in particolare allo sviluppo della ricerca artistica.
 
Discussione di importanti temi riguardanti la ricerca artistica in musica (in lingua inglese)
La giornata di Giovedì sarà dedicata alla discussione e al dibattito aperto sui temi individuati durante le precedenti edizioni di EPARM come punti più emergenti dell’agenda per lo sviluppo della ricerca artistica. La formula dell’EPARM Forum prevede una breva presentazione per ogni tema individuato che faccia da introduzione alle discussioni di gruppo. I quattro temi identificati sono i seguenti:

Metodologia: quali paradigmi metodologici si stanno generando nell’ambito della ricerca artistica? Quali sono le problematiche che maggiormente si legano a questo aspetto e che vanno più chiaramente delineandosi nelle esperienze pratiche, alcune avviate ormai da una decina di anni?

Risorse e Archivi: un accesso informato alle fonti da parte dei musicisti ricercatori e un servizio efficiente da parte delle biblioteche sono requisiti indispensabili per lo sviluppo della ricerca artistica. Come affrontare i problemi legati alla conservazione del patrimonio, alla dematerializzazione digitale delle fonti, all’interno di un nuovo senso di relazione tra fruitori e documenti storici?

Criteri: sviluppo e messa a punto di un corpus di criteri di riferimento per la ricerca artistica in musica – scambio di esperienze e buone pratiche.

Impatto: l’impatto come elemento di fondamentale importanza nella valorizzazione della ricerca artistica: impatto sull’ambiente dell’Alta formazione musicale, sullo sviluppo artistico in tale ambito, su nuovi modi di trasmissione della conoscenza.

 
Tavola Rotonda – con RAMI (con traduzione simultanea in italiano)
Nella mattinata di Venerdì un panel internazionale di esperti del settore affronterà il tema “Dalle attività di network alla cooperazione interistituzionale: come evolve il sistema dell’Alta formazione artistica musicale verso la creazione di un ‘ambiente di ricerca’ capace di dare forma ad una figura di musicista europeo volto al futuro, ma toccato dalla storia, in una dimensione di ricerca intellettuale e artistica incorporata nella pratica musicale. Esempi di buone pratiche, modelli internazionali, strategie e previsioni condivise sugli sviluppi delle infrastrutture per la ricerca artstica”.
 
Considerato il taglio istituzionale degli argomenti trattati dal relatore principale e dalla Tavola Rotonda, l’AEC invita in particolare i Direttori dei Conservatori e le figure di spicco istituzionale a partecipare all’evento, al fine di alimentare il dibattito su questo tema strategico attraverso il confronto con i responsabili internazionali delle attività di ricerca nel campo dell’Alta formazione musicale.

Nella speranza di incontrarvi a Vicenza vi porgiamo i migliori saluti
