Reflections

The main method of documenting reflection throughout this project has been through writing shorter texts, some of which are included in the research blog’s reflection category. In addition to this, I also organised a symposium as a way to inspire further reflection by bringing together musicians that work with speech from different approaches. The symposium included performances and talks by Alessandro Bosetti, Alex Nowitz, and Trevor Wishart (but unfortunately not by Sten Sandell as he had to cancel), documented in video recordings available in the Speech Music Symposium blog post.

This section presents a series of wider reflections on topics related to the processes and results of this project. Some of the more philosophical topics could potentially fill volumes on their own, but even though such extensive discussion is outside the scope of this project, I nevertheless think it is interesting to touch upon these subjects as they form a relevant background of reflection for the creative work in this project.
