Immanent Non-Musicology: Deleuze/Guattari vs. Laruelle

31 Jul , 2015  

In this essay we try to explore non-representationalism in music, which has to be connected to the question of non-representational aesthetics. The philosophers of immanence – Deleuze/Guattari and Laruelle – have something in common: Since the mid- 1980s they reject the discourses and techniques of post-structuralist interpretation of music and ...

24 Mrz , 2015  

Der Merz-Hase ist ein scheues Wesen. Das rechtfertigt allerdings in keiner Weise, dass sein Wirken, ja seine bloße Existenz in der wissenschaftlichen Öffentlichkeit hartnäckig beschwiegen wird. Als regelrecht skandalös empfinden wir es, wenn man den Merz-Hasen als Untergattung des von Kindern und Werbetreibenden phantasierten Osterhasen abtut. Doch der Merz-Hase ist ...
