The Department of Performing Arts at Kingston University London invites 
expressions of interest from strong researchers to join our PhD 
Programme in October 2018. The department supports a lively research 
culture in music, dance and drama spanning both practice-based and 
written research.

Staff in music have particular interests in:
Musicology - Music philosophy, Musical fan cultures, Popular Musicology, 
20th Century European Music (especially French)
Music in multimedia - Film and television music, Gothic, horror, fantasy 
and science fiction music, Intercultural arts research, translation and 
transfer across media in contemporary music
Creative practice research – composition in particular technology 
enabled modes

The department is host to the newly established Visconti Studio. Tapping

just revive objects but actively revives analogue practices. This 
venture combines questions around cultural nostalgia, heritage studies, 
and material culture with the concrete musical practices of composition, 
recording, and production. Further information on
