Giusy Caruso

The artistic research project by Giusy Caruso involves an investigation on her piano performance practice of the 72 Etudes Karnatiques pour piano by the French composer Jacques Charpentier (1933) while embracing the sphere of embodied music cognition, specifically the correlation between intentionality and musical gestures. The challenge is to examine how in musical interpretation the cultural background and the practical experiences lead the performer’s intentions, expressive sensitivities and gestures, assessed in this case study through the implementation of South Indian Music competences, i.e. Karnatic Music, as a complementary Western hermeneutical tool.
