|The AHRC Research Centre for Musical Performance as Creative
Practice (CMPCP) was launched in October 2009, with a five-year
focused on live musical performance and creative music-making.
The Centre is undertaking five research projects with
associated workshops. It has also established an international Performance Studies Network to enable
collaborative research between scholars and performers, in addition to awarding Visiting Fellowships and three doctoral studentships.
The Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice is addressing
such questions as:
is musical performance creative, and what
is creatively embodied in musical
music in performance – and indeed the
act of performance – take shape over time?
understanding musical performance as
practice vary across different global
idioms and performance conditions (such
and ensemble, in the rehearsal room,
studio and concert hall)?
