All ICMuS academic staff are research active – as solo or collaborative researchers (or both); as practice-based or academic researchers (or both); and as music-focused or interdisciplinary researchers (or both). Through these various modalities, staff engage in wide-ranging, often radical inquiry into music’s relations to broader cultural, social and political patterns. This research is cognizant of the fact that music has always been a key part of the everyday – that it shapes our lives, and has a profound impact on our sense of self and our ability to understand our relation to our environment, history and culture. Thus ICMuS research embraces issues of major consequence, which we regard as equally subject to interrogation through writing, performance, improvisation or composition. For details of our many research themes (and for areas in which we are able to offer expert supervision to research degree applicants), see below.
