CASTELLANOS, Natalia  and  SANTAMARIA-DELGADO, Carolina. Research about Music, for Music or from the Practice of Music: A Reflection on the Intellectual Production of Musicians belonging to the Bogotá Universities in Colombia. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2015, vol.69, n.224, pp.91-124. ISSN 0716-2790.

This article discusses the conceptual and institutional conditions surrounding the emergence of the research on the arts as a practice in the context of the university, particularly in the field of music. It considers the incorporation of the arts into the university as an unfinished process, that requires the clarifying of the fundamental difference between creation as an academic research method and creation within the framework of the cultural and creative industries as a practice outside the university. As a proposal it presents a reflection on the state of the artist-professor within the university. Besides, the intellectual production of musicians working as professors in five universities in Bogotá is analyzed as the empirical basis of the study, taking Henk Bordorffs three perspectives on the arts research (2007) as the frame of reference. This scholar suggests that the reflection while practicing art amounts to a research method by itself, which differs from the research about or for the art. Likewise the evaluation criteria for research based on practice devised by Biggs and Bruchler (2008) are presented, in order to establish a concept of research-creation. This concept could serve as the basis of the interaction of the arts with other academic disciplines without having to give up their own inner dynamics.

Keywords : research-creation; the world of art; music as an academic field; artist-professor; intellectual production; art in the university.
