Mariusz Kozak, Department of Music, Columbia University

Moderated by Jenny Boulboullé, Lecturer in History and Columbia-CHF Scholar, Columbia University

This workshop will explore the relationship between music and embodiment. Starting from a specific view on the musician-instrument relationship, Dr. Nijs will elaborate on the importance of the embodied music cognition paradigm for instrumental music teaching and learning, focusing on the different levels of embodiment. Drawing on recent work in motion-capture and on close readings of several passages from contemporary Western Art Music, Professor Kozak will discuss how music as an aesthetic object can be understood through the bodies of performers and listeners. Their explorations will be followed by responses and a panel discussion with music scholars from different disciplines.

This event is free and open to the public.  First come, first seated.  For directions to the Heyman Center, please click here.
