Liam Hynes's picture

Liam Hynes (2013) is a PhD student in music theory. Originally from Amherst, Massachusetts, he holds a BA in Music and East Asian Studies from Brown University and is interested in harmonic language, form, and tonal structure across a broad variety of repertories. He is currently working on a dissertation about the changing meanings of the Phrygian mode and cadence in the music of late-Renaissance and early-baroque Europe, though he also works with the traditional and contemporary music of Japan and the ways it has interacted with other tonal systems. When not engaged in this type of work, he may sometimes be found playing cello, composing, or singing.
