Dissertation by Marina Pereira Cyrino, 2019.
An Inexplicable Hunger – flutist)body(flute (dis)encounters is a doctoral research in musical performance and interpretation, structured by singular encounters that happened between 2014 and 2018. Together with a series of collaborators, I have developed a critical and poetic methodology through what I call “mixture”, “contamination” and the practice of “un-goaling”, in which my practices as a flutist encounters the practices of other artists. It is a search for flexible modes of being a flutist, as a way of working around a dominant characteristic of Western musical practices: what I call a fragmented specialisation, or a specialised fragmentation.
