I am associate professor in musicology and office director at Sound Environment Center. In addition, I am editor-in-chief of the academic section of the online journal Seismograf.

I hold a Ph.D. from the University of Copenhagen (2010). My dissertation was a study of the establishment of the Swedish electronic studio EMS (later published at Kehrer 2014). Since then, my research has concerned historiographic, aesthetic, political and institutional issues within the fields of contemporary music, electronic music, sound and performance art in the 20th and 21st century. In a recent research project, I studied the changing role of performing composers in the 21st century. My present research project Java-Futurism concerns noise and experimental music in Java. The project is collaborative and trans-disciplinary, it is field work based and aims at developing anthropological-aesthetic method of research.

My newest publication is the Bloomsbury Handbook of Sound Art (2020).
