Ken Ueno: Person Specificity and Physiovalence: A Personal Performance Practice

  • Workshop
14. December 2022, 17:00

Noting how Western European classical music values are entrenched exnominatively in music pedagogy in the United States, composer, vocalist, and artist Ken Ueno moves toward creating a personal practice that seeks to “uncorset” musical practice and, by extension, claim artistic agency for those who do not belong to the dominant culture in this artist talk and presentation.

Professor at UC Berkeley, Rome Prize and Berlin Prize winner Ueno (http://kenueno.com) is a composer, vocalist, and sound artist whose music has been performed at venues and festivals around the world. Ueno holds a PhD from Harvard University, and his biography appears in The Grove Dictionary of American Music.

Furthermore, what technical studies and (if applicable) new notational approaches for melody, rhythm, timbre, and interaction derived from these metaphors can best facilitate this goal?
