Featured Speaker:

Brian Robison is a composer whose creative work reflects his performing experience in a broad range of musical styles, his upbringing in a family of scientists, and his childhood fascination with non-human primates, especially chimpanzees. As a music theorist and analyst, he has published research on music by Sir Harrison Birtwistle and King Crimson, on applying fuzzy-set theory to music analysis, and on the so-called “Sensitive Female Chord Progression.” Dr. Robison is currently an Assistant Academic Specialist in the Department of Music at Northeastern University.
