Research Forum: Prof. Chris Stover (Arizona State University) and "meet-the-postdocs"

Prof. Chris Stover from the Arizona State University will give a guest lecture entitled "Eight Axioms for a Theory of Timeline Music."

Guest lecture with Prof. Chris Stover

Professor Chris Stover presents his talk:

In this talk I will introduce a theory of how a number of musical layers come together to define a class of musical expression that I call timeline music. I will begin by introducing eight axioms, each of which outlines a property that I suggest is shared by all musics that fit within the category of timeline musics. I will illustrate each with musical examples from West Africa, Cuba, and Brazil, showing how each axiom contributes crucially to my larger definition. I will conclude with some thoughts on how this framework affects and engenders groove, including issues of expression, feel, and microtiming.

Meet the postdocs

Our new postdocs will give a short presentation of their projects followed by a few minutes of questions and comments.
