CONCERT CYCLE MUSIC4L-MENTE

MUSIC4L-MENTE

Concert Cycle with Scientific Preludes

 

curatorship Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro

scientific committee António Damásio, Barbara Tillmann, Hanna Damásio, Maria Majno, Nuno Sousa, Stefan Kölsch,

co-organisation Ministério da Ciência, Tecnologia e Ensino Superior, Teatro Nacional São João, DSCH Associação Musical

 

Opening concerts of the new cycle MUSIC4L-MENTE will take place in Porto and Lisbon, on November 11 and 12, 2021.

Curated by pianist Filipe Pinto-Ribeiro, MUSIC4L-MENTE explores the intersection of music and the neurosciences in a series of chamber music concerts with scientific preludes.

Between November 2021 and June 2022, four world-class string quartets – Michelangelo, Hermès, Cosmos and Gropius – will make their Portuguese debut, playing key works by major composers. Four guest speakers, researchers of international renown, will present lectures on the intimate (physiological, therapeutical) relationship between music (sound, noise) and the brain. It is in the brain that music happens, it is in the brain that we interpret it. The concerts that follow the preludes put us to the test by putting music in our heads, which we will enjoy in a more conscious and informed condition.

The four programs of MUSIC4L-MENTE, a cycle of noticeable international importance, in both musical and scientific terms, will take place in November, January, April and June in Porto, at the Monastery of São Bento da Vitória, and in Lisbon, at the Thalia Theater.

MUSIC4L-MENTE is a partnership between the Ministry of Science, Technology and Higher Education, the Teatro Nacional São João and DSCH – Associação Musical.

Prof. Barbara Tillmann (Lyon University, França)

“Neurosciences and music: From basic research to implications for education, society and health”

Over the past twenty years, the domain of research dedicated to the neurosciences of music perception and production has considerably expanded. This presentation will first propose an overview of some basic research investigating the cognitive and neural correlates of music processing. These findings have then provided the basis for the investigation of the potential benefit of music listening and music training for the healthy and the pathological brain, from the young to the elderly.

Prof. Nuno Sousa (Minho University, Portugal)

“Music-evoked emotions: kinetics and dynamics in the brain”

The brain response trigger by music is fascinating and quite revealing on the how the brain processes stimuli and generates emotions and moods. Understanding these brain correlates and dynamics creates a unique opportunity to modulate brain activity in health and in disease.

Prof. Maria Majno (Vice-President of the Mariani Foundation for Paediatric Neurology, Italy)

"Gender and Music. The promising sound of new water under old bridges"

From the rediscovery of women's key roles in music, to major social implications, to the dynamic role of scholars, composers and interpreters: the importance of gender studies related to music is long established and yet its evolution has spectacularly accelerated in recent times. We will share main themes from the history of ideas, original views from neuroscientists and musicians, and relate them to the fields of education and performance: an exciting counterpoint is in progress.
