Brian Miller's picture

Brian Miller (2014) is a PhD candidate in music theory. He previously completed a BS in computer engineering and an MM in music theory at the University of Kansas. His dissertation revisits Leonard Meyer’s theory of musical style from the perspective of recent work in art history and semiotics, focusing on the relations among the varied stylistic concerns of music theory, performance, criticism, and historiography. Other interests include philosophy and critical theory, computational approaches to music and the digital humanities more generally, sound studies, and anthropology. Otherwise, he spends as much time as possible on the tennis courts in East Rock, occasionally practices the violin, and enjoys reading fiction and eating barbecue (preferably in Kansas City).
