Oogoo Maia PhD completion

Congratulations to Dr. Maia who has now completed his PhD! Oogoo’s fascinating project focused on developing a vigilant musical practice, which he describes as exploring three main principles: non-normative cognitive states (how the performer thinks); embodied multimodal imagery across a full effort scale (the images a performer draws with their presence); and inter-personal communication (the performer’s readiness to react to the audience’s presence) and the performance environment. As well as an extended thesis, Oogoo’s submission includes a comprehensive book of pieces and exercises titled Games for Musicians and Non-musicians, referencing Augusto Boal’s seminal book for actors.

The project is a fantastic achievement, and you can access the work directly from Bath Spa’s research repository, researchSPAce.

Well done Oogoo!
