Rana Gediz İren

Music and Sound in Contemporary Art

27 October, 3 November, 10, 17, 24, 1 December
Every Tuesday, 19:00

In this six-week seminar held by Rana Gediz İren, the multilayered relationship between classical music tradition from the 20th century onwards and contemporary art will be examined chronologically. Today, we often come across works that utilise music and sound. However, the relationship and interaction between composers and artists that have brought visual art, music and sound together, and enriched the cultural development of the Western world mostly date back to the early 20th century. In certain instances, through close collaborations between the artists, and in others, through the mutual aesthetic considerations they have employed in dealing with the social and political circumstances, many exciting artworks that can be traced to one another were produced during this time. Following World War II, the productions and approaches which had proved increasingly interdisciplinary also contributed to highlighting the use of music and sound in contemporary art. With the advancement of digital technology, the collaborations between composers and visual artists have become frequent while sound has turned into a more important component in visual art practices. In the seminar which will cover this historical process by reflecting on Arter’s exhibitions that focus on sound, Rana Gediz İren will open the diversified practices of the artists, composers and the performers to discussion.


 


Rana Gediz İren is a musicologist. She studied at Cambridge University and at Istanbul Technical University Centre for Advanced Studies in Music. She teaches music, culture and arts in Boğaziçi University, at the Western Languages and Literatures department of the Arts and Sciences Faculty. In her research, Gediz İren traces the influence of the Ottoman Empire on Italian vocal compositions in the modern period. The interaction of classical music and visual arts, orientalism in music, and the history of opera are amongst her interests. She is the General Secretary of the Istanbul Philharmonic Society since 2018.

The seminar will be in Turkish.
