Aesthetics of total serialism:contemporary research from music to architecture
- About Author
Total serialism as a concept, has progressed beyond the twelve-tone technique of composers Schoenberg and Webern, and since the 1950s it has been constantly developed. Today, it refers to far more than just a technical process for composing, rather it offers one possibility of creatively integrating knowledge on man and nature into works of art. On all levels of artificial, man-made creations - from musical compositions to architectonic designs - it allows properties and dimensions to be systematically organised, with criteria such as mass and proportions playing decisive roles. Markus Bandur (born in 1960) studied science of music, philosophy and history and now teaches at the universities of Freiburg i.Br, Berne and Kassel.
