My research question:

How can I perform contemporary classical music to communicate more directly with the listener, by working with presence as a performer, and using prosody (the melody and rhythm of the language) as an inspiration for performance?

My research aims:

I have explored different methods for reaching an intensified presence in performing.

I aim at describing the process of learning and performing a musical work – both physically and mentally thus using and documenting a reflective practitioner approach to musical experience.

My main aim is to create new understandings about practice with particular attention to contemporary music.
