Research_Archiving brings together
research, archival, publishing, historical and theoretical works into what is widely
known as edgy music practices. Research into the current situation in theory
and practice will be followed by theoretical discussion and reflection. The
subject area will be addressed by various authors from different methodological
and theoretical bases. Research is based on archiving, and is, at the same time,
making contemporary history, primarily in the field of edgy music, but
indirectly in the sense of broader social space and time, as well as related
current thinking and artistic paradigms.
Our purpose is to research:
a) when and how edgy musical content and
form appear in Slovenian music practice;
b) to what extent these practices are treated in theoretical
and pre-theoretical (promotional, publishing) discourse;
c) how can the concrete interplay of these
creative practices and reflective discourses be explained through the specifics
of the local cultural ecosystem.
will therefore analyze how edgy music practice
has been implemented and the manner in which society reflects them. We also
want to explore which stakeholders, institutions and other players have
been decisive in establishing the current field of edgy music practice and
theoretical discourse in our space.
