In a convergence of academic and artistic minds, the Tartini Conservatory in Trieste is set to host a conference from March 25th to March 27th, delving into the nuanced relationship between education and musical innovation. Titled “Sound: The Raw Material for Invention – Contributions, Experiences, and Resources for a Pedagogy of Musical Invention,” the event promises a captivating exploration of the interplay between education and creativity in the realm of music.

The brainchild of Cristina Fedrigo, a distinguished professor of Musical Pedagogy and coordinator at the Tartini Conservatory, in collaboration with the Maurizio Di Benedetto APS Study Center, this conference seeks to challenge conventional wisdom by spotlighting the intrinsic connections between education and musical invention. With an esteemed scientific committee comprising experts from both institutions, including names like Mario Piatti, Maria Grazia Bellia, and Maurizio Vitali, the conference boasts a formidable lineup of speakers and contributors.

Over the course of three immersive days, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in a diverse array of workshops and discussions, exploring topics ranging from creative repetition to the role of improvisation in instrumental education. Noteworthy sessions include “Create Your Music: 30 Cards for Improvising and Composing,” led by Stefania di Blasio and Simona Scolletta, and “Traces of Experiences for a Radio 0-6,” curated by Matteo Frasca.

Central to the conference’s ethos is the belief that invention should be regarded as a fundamental aspect of the educational experience, with sound serving as the catalyst for creative exploration. In the words of Cristina Fedrigo, “In every educational context, invention can constitute the primary and indispensable form of experience and thought.”

Beyond the confines of traditional discourse, the conference will feature interactive installations curated by leading experts, including an exploration of György Kurtág’s “Játékok” and an innovative project titled “Syn-Aisthanomai: Correspondence between Sound and Color,” which seeks to bridge the gap between auditory and visual stimuli.

As the conference draws near, anticipation is palpable among educators, musicians, and scholars alike, all poised to engage in a thought-provoking dialogue at the intersection of education and musical innovation. For those unable to attend in person, the proceedings will be accessible via live stream, ensuring that the insights and revelations of this groundbreaking event reach a global audience.
