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 extent during the performance. Such a situation conforms to ‘commentary’ 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 formal musical structure through the reconstructed repertoire, renders the modern performance interchangeable; either as a subject of musicological research or as a methodological tool. Certainly, this productive procedure requires the disarming of all kinds of stereotypes, particularly the most simplified dipoles (traditional-modern, East-West, Greek-foreign, scholarly-popular) and their canonized archetypes.
