MemberBrian Christopher Thompson

I am a musicologist and librarian-archivist. I teach courses on music history, film music, and music pedagogy at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Before joining CUHK, I was employed by Naxos International, the University of Hong Kong, McGill University, and the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Much of my work concerns music and migration, especially transatlantic migration in the nineteenth century. As a film music scholar, I am interested in how composers adapt the conventions of the past, and how subtexts can be created through diegetic music.

MemberChris Stover

I’m a Senior Lecturer of Music Studies and Research at Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University (Brisbane), and an Associate Researcher at the RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Study of Rhythm, Time and Motion (University of Oslo) and the Orpheus Institute (Ghent). I’m also a busy composer and improvising trombonist. My research is on musical interaction and improvisation, philosophy, temporal processes in African and Afro-diasporic musics, and feminist, queer, postcolonial and phenomenological approaches to thinking about music, including music analysis. I’m also deeply interested in music pedagogy. I edit the new online Practice Magazine (submissions accepted!), am Critical Forum Editor for Music Analysis, and will soon be soliciting contributions for a new book series on music and philosophy with Edinburgh University Press.

Music theorist who studies aural skills pedagogy, music theory pedagogy, and early music analysis. I’m particularly interested in reforming aural skills education to better serve a broader range of students. I teach at Utah State University, and previously taught as a lecturer at UMass Amherst and a Visiting Lecturer at Indiana University.
