Bio/Research

My work is concerned with theories of musical meaning in their relationship to popular music cultures. My early research culminated in a book about Neil Young, published by Indiana University Press. I am now engaged a program of research concerning the theory of musical topics and its application to rock cultures of the 1960s and 1970s, and am beginning work on several articles which, besides standing on their own, will serve as pilot studies for a book about musical topic theory and psychedelia. In addition, I am developing a secondary research interest concerning relationships between environmental theory and musical signification.
