Example text

It was 1996, and I was representing music on a study group convened by the UK Council for Graduate Education (UKCGE). Our focus, to borrow the title of the report published the following year, was PracticeBased Doctorates in the Creative and Performing Arts and Design. The group was chaired by Christopher Frayling, at that time Rector of the Royal College of Art, and the other members came from various parts of the art and design sector. The point with which I couldn’t agree was that a practice-based doctoral submission must include a major textual component, consisting perhaps of 40,000 words, on the grounds that clarification of the research process is an essential element of any doctoral submission, and that artistic practice – of whatever kind – does not provide this.

However the point I want to make is that HIP was, and is, based on an iterative method in which knowledge flows in both directions between musicologists and performers. Not only is this an example of performance as research: HIP may be said to have established beyond doubt the viability and the value of performance as research. There is a parallel to HIP in AIP, though the acronym isn’t generally used: analytically informed performance can again be characterised – and this time more accurately – as the application of academic knowledge to practice.
