The Body in Musical Performance: Perceptions, knowledge and beliefs
The present study is part of a process of reflection on the relation, relevance and intervention of the body in the musical performance. Considering that the entire performative process demands a unified participation of the instrument, mind and body, it is necessary to deepen the reflection about the perceptions, knowledge and convictions of the faculty, student and professional in the field of music. Given the complementarity between body and performative dimension, it is fundamental to consider the quality that this relationship assumes in the learning processes. Given the objectives of the study, we opted for a methodological conception that allows the articulation of qualitative and quantitative approaches, fundamental to understand, describe and interpret the different representations / perceptions of the participants. In this way, the questionnaire survey (Questionnaire I and II) was directed to the faculty and students of the area of music of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro and researchers of the Brazilian Association of Musical Performance. The obtained results show that the differentiated coordination and the body movements assume an essential condition for the musician and his performance.
