Research alternatives for music from the point of view of an artist

Maurice de Martin
Maurice de Martin is an experimental musician (among others a percussionist in the ensemble zeitkratzer) and an artist working in a transdisciplinary way. He evolves in contexts of social controversy and through his projects jolts the dialog between arts, sciences, politics, business and the “experts of everyday life”. In the following text the author proposes research alternatives for music from a resolutely artistic point of view. He thus discusses the history, possibilities and limits of this alternative “research style” in a context both internal and external to academia. He also calls for an intensified involvement of music in this discipline, and gives insights into his own research work.
