Music

The Department of Music is a centre of research excellence in both composition and musicology. In composition, there is no particular 'house style', but we are well known for a number of areas including, acoustic work, ranging from solo to symphonic scale; electro-acoustic, including acousmatic composition, composition exploring the interface of Western and non-Western traditions. The department also provides access to a wide network of opportunities for professional and amateur performance. In musicology, research strengths include not only the Western art music tradition, but screen media, non-Western and popular music. We have particular depth of expertise in the early Middle Ages and the Renaissance (especially in France and Spain), and in the 19th and 20th centuries (including the music of France, Britain and Soviet Russia). We also have expertise in Anglophone vernacular traditions including jazz and hip hop; in opera, film, music and the history and philosophy of technology, music and migration, and cultural and reception history more generally. Several musicology students are co-supervised between the Department of Music and a related department, such as Russian, English or History.
