Marietjie Pauw


Marietjie Pauw teaches flute at the Johnman Music Centre in Stellenbosch where she also administrates the public-lending library called the ‘Éva Tamássy Collection’ of sheet music, and the ‘Tamássy Flute Hour’ for flute players.

Marietjie is an Andrew W. Mellon-funded postdoctoral researcher with Africa Open Institute for Music, Research and Innovation at Stellenbosch University. Her PhD in artistic research (under supervision of Prof Stephanus Muller) was documented as ‘Curating South African flute compositions: Landscape as theme of exhibition’ (Stellenbosch University, 2015). She has published articles in Oxford Artistic Research (forthcoming), Acta Academica, LitNet Akademies, Journal of the Musical Arts in Africa, South African Music Studies and NewMusicSA Bulletin. She has premièred numerous South African compositions, and has performed on national festivals. She recorded flute solos on the Afrimusik, Southernbuzz and AOI labels. The short films ‘Kreun’ (Aryan Kaganof, 2016), ‘Khoisan ghost kreun’ (Kaganof, 2016), ‘Nege fragmente uit ses khoi’npsalms’ (Kaganof, 2018) and ‘Suiwer in Blauw’ (Kaganof, 2018) portray Marietjie and Garth Erasmus in their recent investigative music collaborations which explore place, history, some free improvisation, and fluidity found in music-making when music operates as a critical tool in humanities and arts discourses.
