Handlung, Inszenierung, Performance. Zur interaktionstheoretischen Konzeptualisierung musikalischer Artistik

  • This paper alms to conceptualize the notion of music performance drawing on concepts from the sociology of knowledge and culture respectively the social phenomenology tradition as well as concepts from performance and theatre studies. Thereby music is grasped as a social event Insofar as music needs an intermediating instance to get perceptible as music. In other words: There is no (auditive perceptible) music without making music. Thus music performance can be understood as a sort of node bringing together the different realms of the musical process. This in mind the present paper discusses first music (performance) as action and interaction arguing that music (making) has an immanent tendency to be perceived as performance. Consequently the notion of performance and the Interrelated notion of staging are considered in the second part of the paper showing what is meant with the terms performance and performance frame. These insights lead to the third and last part which discusses the notion of theatricality to identify features specific for music performances and to show that and how music (performance) is best understood as an »artistic« process.
