Is it possible to create imaginary music only hearable for the inner ear of the listener? A kind of music in which the listener also be- comes the composer? A utopic kind of music in which anything therefore is possible? Can written stories about sound manifest them- selfes as imaginary pieces of music inside the listeners mind brought to life using the inner ear? Can the story about a piece of art, become the piece of art?
I am interested in how to democratize the act of creating, and is looking into the utopic space of imaginary music as a method of composing and as a catalyst for creating.
On a philosophical level I am interested in how stories about music can be accepted as being music detached from any psychical manifestation, and how narratives are capable of constituting reality. How can this narrative metasphere be a space for artistic action in what could be described as curatorial times?
