I am a writer and musician studying the history and philosophy of contemporary musical knowledge. Since 2000 I have intermittently performed and released electronic music, experimental video and conceptual art under a variety of pseudonyms including pino the frog, de kikker, and the animalizer. Over the past decade I have taught at the universities of Oxford, Birmingham, and Edinburgh and held research fellowships from the British Academy, the Institute of Musical Research, and the Fonds de Recherche Québecois – Société et Culture. I hold an undergraduate degree in performance from McGill University, a graduate certificate in digital media from Concordia University, a master’s degree from the Institute of Sonology, and a doctoral degree from the University of Oxford. Since 2015 I have been an Associate Editor at Contemporary Music Review.
