Associated scholarship(s):20/14875-2 - Orality and the intimate music-making, BE.EP.PD


The field of Ethnomusicology has been undergoing an epistemological shift through which the ethnographic work has been increasingly observing not only the collective musical making, which marked most of the works in the discipline during the twentieth century, but also the individual music making. In this research project, we intend to produce an ethnography of Julio Valverde's intimate music making from two dimensions: individual, referring to his composition process, aesthetic project, experiences and expectations as an artist; and local, concerning the environment where his works are created and subsequently presented to a restricted group of close friends. This last dimension is particularly relevant, since this research is linked to the thematic project "O musicar local: novas trilhas para a etnomusicologia" (FAPESP process n. 16/05318-7), which focuses on the relationship between the various forms of musical engagement and the locality. This research, whose outputs will encompass written and audiovisual formats, has also an autobiographical dimension, essential for the very own establishment of the ethnographic pact between the researcher and the person studied.
