From Musical Composition to Sound Design is a collection of articles and publications from academic journals, conference proceedings and books all centered around the theme of music and progressively rethought as sound design.
Gathered for academic purposes (2018), these texts concern musical creation, their relationship to images and the writing of sounds at a pivotal turning point - the digital revolution at the end of the last century - posing new challenges both with respect to creation as well as to research and their reciprocal teachings.
From musicological reflection oriented towards the question of perception, the author's works focus on the relationship between music and technology, and then via that of music in cinema and the accompaniment of images, arrives at the question of sound design. Within the parameters of philosophy and art sciences, the training perspectives of future actors of this epistemological interdisciplinarity are then considered.
Finally, the author concludes with the following questions for thought: Can one be a researcher simultaneously not only within one's own practice but also about one's practice? Is this double posture epistemologically tenable and if so, under what conditions? Assuming that it is existentially tenable, does it not imply a position of "the judge and the one being judged", and thus a risk of cognitive bias, at the very least, methodological?
