Qu'est-ce que penser - en - musique ?

Abstract : The hypothesis we will try to validate in our PhD thesis will be the following: any time a musician creates, composes, improvises or performs, he thinks. More precisely, he uses a very specific type of thought which circulates, skimming on the musical activity. A non-reflexive thought that doesn’t speculate, doesn’t theorize or argue, but acts and experiments. The work we have undertaken has for goal, on the basis of what we call “musical practices”, the understanding and the description of this specific mode of “thinking-in-music”. The method employed will be a long sailing up from these practices in order to point out the presence of “thinking-in-music” at every step of the work in progress. Actions linked to this “back travelling”, which will bring us to the core of musical creativity, shall be the actions of broadcasting, playing, recording, writing, deciding, and composing music. The perspective we have chosen all along our analysis will be the production one (instead of most philosophical works on music which are generally based on the reception point of view). To conclude this abstract, we will add that the subsidiary goal of this study is to bring a new contribution to the very ancient philosophical question of the link between “thinking and action”. In art, this question is now, and more than ever, a burning one.
