On the one hand, the notion of movement has been examined through its archetypal, theoretical, psychological and philosophical elaboration: temporal inscription or apprehension of space, various models, etc. are on the table of contents of the present work. On the other hand, the exploration of the thought and representations of movement has made it possible to circumscribe the singular domain of the works and to explore corollary the fundamental musical and artistic writings. What are the implications of these new mental representations for artistic creation? What new aesthetic resonances are offered by the dynamic models of contemporary thought? Here are the main questions that feed the content of the different articles in these proceedings of the academic colloquiums organised in 2017, under the auspices of the international festival aCROSS.
Exclusively focused on the compositional thinking of the late 20th and early 21st centuries and scaffolded in six parts ranging from "Thought movement", "Gesture movement", "Archetype movement"... to "Dynamic forms" and "Kinetics / Kinematics", via "Movements of the body and mind"... MOUVEMENT - Cinetism and Dynamic Models in Art and Music includes texts by Georges Beriachvili, Anne Boissière, Pierre-Albert Castanet, Jean-Marc Chouvel, Nicolas Darbon, Florent Di Bartolo, Frédéric Girard, Xavier Hautbois, Martin Laliberté, Samuel Lamontagne, Jean-Baptiste Masson, Mauricio Arturo Meza Ruiz, Valérie Ométak, Arthur Perini, Stéphane Sacchi, Lenka Stransky and Biliana Vassileva.
Since its creation in 2011, the aCROSS festival has been committed to establishing a fruitful dialogue between research, creation and training. In this context, its specialised team has constantly questioned various forms of contemporary art: in particular those that explore the interactions and exchanges between the worlds of sound, visual and conceptual art, with a particular emphasis on the application of new digital technologies.
