DeNOTE's principal aim is to encourage a creative mixture of practical and intellectual approaches to the musical realisation of eighteenth-century repertoires and to spotlight practice-based research topics that move beyond notation itself into the performative realm of sound. It seeks to involve independent practitioner-researchers and to give them a platform for discussing their work more widely within their communities and also with academic specialists from the conservatoire and university sector. DeNOTE was launched in 2010 with start-up funding from the School of Advanced Study, Core musicians involved are John Irving (fortepiano), Jane Booth (clarinet), Ruth Alford (cello) and Marcus Barcham-Stevens (violin). DeNOTE is led by Professor John Irving.
