Welcome Matthew Lorenzon, Adjunct Junior Research Associate

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThe Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music would like to warmly welcome our latest Adjunct Junior Research Associate, Dr Matthew Lorenzon to our midst. 

Matthew is a journalist and musicologist who is passionate about art music of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. His academic work combines theoretical and philosophical speculation with music analysis and archival research. He holds a doctoral degree in musicology from the Australian National University with a thesis on the interaction of music and philosophy in Antagonisme, a chamber work by Xavier Darasse on a text by Alain Badiou. As a music journalist, Matthew believes in critics maintaining a dialogue with musicians and audiences to help foster mutual understanding.

During his three-year associateship, Matthew will be contributing to the School of Music research and composition seminars, as well as contributing to research into contemporary art music.
