Ph.D. in Artistic Research

Again and Again and Again is about new musical works that in various ways integrate historical music as important components.

Buene has investigated the critical potential in the repetition of music history, and he is interested in the historical residue in both the apparatus of production and performance of new music.

Buene has composed three works during the project period, dealing with different aspects of the apparatus of musical performance: A piece made within the framework of the institutionalized orchestral performance – the symphonic site; A work where the situation of chamber music performance is thematized; A performance where the intimacy of the private musical space has been investigated. These works are reflected in an accompanying body of text where ideas in and around the works are discussed in three different formats: The long essay, the brief note and the fictional form of the novel.
