Ian Quinn, Chair Of Department of Music At Yale, To Discuss Research Thursday
Ian Quinn, the chair of the Department of Music at Yale University’s Faculty of Arts and Sciences, will speak at the School of Performance, Visualization and Fine Arts on Thursday afternoon.
The discussion, titled “Visualizing Music, Notating Music, Practicing Music,” will be in the Adams Presentation Room, 212 Langford A. A reception begins at 3:30 p.m. and the talk begins at 4 p.m.
Quinn has focused on the field of musical corpus studies, described as “the use of computational techniques to model musical practices at the scale of entire repertoires instead of analyzing individual works.” His research focuses on singing practices that “involve systems of notations, visualizations or vocables to regulate and stabilize a repertory.”
Quinn has degrees from Columbia University (Bachelor of Arts) and the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester (master’s, Ph.D.), and he has taught at the University of Chicago and the University of Oregon.
Quinn edited the Journal of Music Theory from 2004 to 2011 and has served on its board for 19 years. He also serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Mathematics and Music, and is coeditor of the forthcoming Oxford Handbook of Music and Corpus Studies. Two of his publications have earned Society for Music Theory awards.
