Title PhD. Thesis: [provisional title] Alterity as critique of exoticism in Fernando Lopes-Graça's musical works on Brazilian themes
Scholarship Reference: CAPES (03/2014 - 08/2015 e 08/2016 até a presente data)/PDSE-CAPES (09/2015 a 07/2016)

The aim of this project is to discuss the construction of alterity in Fernando Lopes-Graça’s musical works on Brazilian themes, especially his view of musical exoticism, considering the historical and aesthetical context, his compositional approach of the thematic material, the statements on Brazilian music and musicians in his literary works and correspondence and interviews with some musicians that worked with the composer. As a secondary objective and research unfolding, I intend to analyze Lopes-Graça’s conception of and relation with locality and how it affects his musical approach to other cultures. This part of the research is developed as part of the thematic project “Local Musicking”, based in the Arts Institute of the University of Campinas (UNICAMP), in the Brazilian Studies Institute (IEB) and in the Laboratory for Image and Sound in Anthropology (LISA), both in the University of São Paulo (USP).
