Present

The corpus of the video/audio recordings that result give a prospect of adaptation/arrangement and establishes the foundations for the re-examination and re-determination of words, such as ‘cover’, following the international musicological trends. This procedure embodies a special pedagogical interest, since, essentially, the original pieces are deconstructed and re-composed, to a great extend during the performance. Such a situation conforms to ‘commentation’ of popular music utilizing modern languages which lead to the development of performance practices as well as of new aesthetical proposals. The understanding and structuring of the musical formal structure through the reconstructed repertoire, places the modern performance sometimes in the place of the object for the musicological research and sometimes in the place of the methodological tool. Certainly, this productive procedure demands the disarming of all kinds of stereotypes, particularly the most simplified dipoles (traditional-modern, East-West, Greek-foreign, scholar-popular) and their canonized archetypes.
