Sie erweitern die Selbstbeschreibungen der KomponistInnen beziehungsweise deren Ich-Perspektiven durch einen soziologisch und wissenstheoretisch inspirierten Ansatz, um Inhalte herauszuarbeiten, die sonst im Hintergrund der situativen Aufmerksamkeit bleiben. Somit richtet sich das Interesse der Autoren auf jene Komponenten und Bedingungen, die künstlerische Handlungsfähigkeit konstituieren. Kompositionsprozesse werden folglich als offene und dynamische Vorgänge betrachtet. Hören, Fühlen, Vorstellen, Suchen, Entwerfen, Ausprobieren, Spielen, Nachdenken, Notieren und Korrigieren stellen eine kleine Auswahl der vielschichtigen kompositorischen Aktivitäten dar. Künstlerisch-praktisches Können bildet sich aus einer steten Verzahnung solcher Aktivitäten, denen kognitive, sinnliche, körperliche und erfahrungsgeleitete Wissensformen zugrunde liegen.
