Musical Creation and Creativity

The Grieg Research School (GRS) seminar “Musical Creation and Creativity: Towards new Practices, Processes and Understandings?” takes place at the University of Bergen, November 25-28, 2013.
I will be participating at this seminar in a panel discussion entitled “Creativity, Civilization and Ecology” and serving as Respondent to a paper presentation entitled “Creativity in Piano Performance and Pedagogy: A Chinese Perspective”.

According to the announcement, “This GRS seminar will explore the concepts of creation and creativity from an interdisciplinary point of view, meaning comparisons and sharing of our conceptualizations as understood within in the framework of the different disciplines involved in Grieg Research School; musicology, music therapy, music performance and music education, as well as related scientific areas.”  


It is a relief to be feeling well enough to make plans again, after being forced to cancel participation in several events due to a severe flue during much of early November. 

It looks likely that I will be doing some lecturing in Beijing again in mid-December, and the main writing project for that month is to complete the final work on our new book Theory and Method in Ethnomusicology, and send the manuscript to press (for publication in early 2014).
