Ouverture / Opening session
Following on from work we have conducted with professional pianists on the associative nature of mental representations of music, we present here a study aimed at exploring the process of elaboration and memorization of Florentine Mulsant’s contemporary pieces with pianists aged between 9 and 11.
The participants declared to use of various extra-musical supports, analogies, metaphors and body perceptions, particularly in the stages of memorization and artistic appropriation. This suggests that this type of association is an aid to the memorization of non-tonal pieces and leads us to believe that the development of a proto-narrative envelope is closely linked to the elaboration of musical discourse, particularly on contemporary pieces with children in the early years of learning.
