My research focuses on music from the twentieth century, which I study through the lens of compositional process, score analysis, and historiography. My dissertation examines the concept of Universal Music in Western art music of the late 1960s and early 1970s, particularly in the work of Stockhausen, Pousseur, Berio, Vivier and Kagel. Other research interests include electronic and mixed music, music and politics, and the impact of multiculturalism on compositional gesture.
