The 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.
