epistemic thing – example

Paulo de Assis about the epistemic thing in musical performance:
“If we require the performance to be an idealized act of interpretation … we take away the possibility for epistemic things to emerge or to unfold into unforeseen dimensions … If we want to give credibility to performance as an instance, among others, of epistemic activity, we need a concept such as “experimentation” that creates space in relation to the score (…) allowing unpredictable futures to happen.”
