Composing music with a space

Abstract

This paper presents a model to compose music in which space is deeply implicated in the compositional process of a piece and its performance. By space, we refer to a particular site and its surroundings. The word empathy is used to define the implications space has in a musical composition and represents the idea of space and music being combined. Additionally, it envisages numerous degrees of engagement. Based on the concept of empathy we will define what is musical composition in a space, musical composition for a space and finally musical composition with a space. The latter represents the highest form of empathy and consists of three different but complementary phases: (1) connections repertoire, (2) connections repertoire systematization and (3) musical performance. Two pieces composed by the authors will be discussed.
