I am working on my research and expriments into the Practice Room… how do I begin to show processes and experiences that happen in a space that is made for one to be alone ? a room that has physical dimensions but also functions as a mental space of solitude, concentration and experimentation. Can these factors that make up a practice room, important for musicians when they use it, also be made available to others – can the practice room become a universal space, and if so what are it’s requirements ? I am looking forward to interactions and explorations with the others at the academy… who is the teacher, the artist, the student ? how can we learn from each other, and how do we create spaces and rooms to learn in ?
