Founded in 1998, the Popular Music Interest Group is dedicated to promoting the scholarly study of popular music through methods including musical analysis and theory. Our goals include:
• Ensuring academic recognition for popular music research
• Encouraging more scholars of music theory to engage popular repertoires
• Encouraging scholars of popular music to make effective use of musical analysis and theory

On our Humanities Commons site, we rely on our members to help edit this resource — this cooperation will help continually improve the presence of popular music in our classrooms and scholarship. Many thanks!

    I’m trying to track down a paper or the researcher listed on the website from the 2016 round table. The presentation is listed as:

    John Mattessich (Florida State University): “Generative Elements in the Music of Kendrick Lamar”

    I can’t find a record of him at Florida State and all the usual research avenues have turned up nothing.

    Any help appreciated!

    John Mattessich graduated with his M.M. in music theory from Florida State University in 2016.  He is currently a doctoral student at Indiana University. I don’t have an email address for him, but that should be enough information for you to locate him.
