In a world of spectacle in which everything seems to have already been told, the vocal-chamber music recital is found in an identity crisis. The economic, social and cultural context in which it takes place is labile and determines the performers to ask themselves what is their position within the sctructures in which they function/operate.

The originality of the thesis spans from its interdisciplinary character and from its multifaceted approach of the performative phenomenon.


Expected direct seismic losses assessment is performed on probabilistic basis using world-wide accepted methodologies for two study areas located in Iasi Municipality. The probabilistic assessment refers to the following issues: site-dependent seismic hazard, expected seismic response of buildings, seismic fragility of structures, expected seismic damage. The analysis of the spatial distribution of the existing building stock as well as the presentation of the results on expected direct seismic losses are performed using geographic information systems (GIS)
