MOVE focuses on individuals' musical experience and artistic creativity from a musicological perspective. This research is concerned with art as a source of knowledge and experience, as well as how it is expressed in various contexts. The research projects linked to this theme study different forms of musical expression and artistic creation as activities, processes and meaningful phenomena carried out by humans.
