Orpheus Research Centre in Music

The Orpheus Research Centre in Music [ORCiM] is a place where musical artists can fruitfully conduct individual and collaborative research on issues that are of concern to all involved in artistic practice. The development of a discipline-specific discourse in the field of artistic research in music is the core mission of ORCiM.
The Subseries of the Collected Writings of the Orpheus Institute explicitly ‘zooms in’ on studies that take artistic practice as their point of departure and deal with questions and challenges that arise from that practice. It is this kind of research, in all its variety, which the Orpheus Research Centre in Music promotes and which the Subseries is designed to present. The contributions within the Subseries extend the possibilities and understanding of musical practice and act as a springboard for future research in this young but fascinating area.
