Research Expertise and Interests

I am a writer, translator and musician studying the culture, history and philosophy of musical thinking and invention. My focus over the past decade has been on the conception, production and governance of 'experimentalisms' in contemporary music, and I have a special interest in pedagogical and theoretical translations across the Atlantic anglo- and francospheres in the late twentieth century.

My ongoing projects include a monograph on the administrative and political impact of Pierre Schaeffer's music and media theory, forthcoming from Edinburgh University Press in 2024, several articles examining modernist university music teaching experiments in France and Britain in the 1970s, and new English translations of French experimental music philosophy, including The Time of the Voice, a 1978 monograph by the influential founder of the music department at the Université Paris 8, Daniel Charles.

Previous writing has appeared in Contemporary Music Review (where I was also Associate Editor from 2015 to 2021), History of Education, Journal of Popular Music Studies, Journal of the Royal Musical Association, Los Angeles Review of Books, Music & Letters, Organised Sound, and The Senses & Society. Between 2011 and 2021 I held doctoral and postdoctoral research fellowships at the Universities of Oxford, Edinburgh and Birmingham, with funding from the British Academy, the Institute of Musical Research, the Fonds de Recherche du Québec, and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
