Our 音乐学院 is among the largest of the UK's university music departments, with an international reputation across the three sub-disciplines of composition, performance, and musicology (including ethnomusicology and popular music).
Defining characteristics of the research environment in Music since 2008 include:
- A managed transition in the staff complement and associated research interests. With strategic financial support from the University, five new members of staff were appointed, three lecturers and two professors.
- A highly research-active staff, ranging widely across the discipline. Seven monographs, 11 edited/co-edited books, 55 chapters in multi-authored volumes, and 33 journal articles were published; and 16 compositions were given their premiere.
- Extensive wider contribution to the discipline, within and beyond academia, including collaboration with international organisations such as the BBC and Welsh National Opera.
Characteristic of the culture is the erosion of conventional subdisciplinary boundaries: musicology and ethnomusicology come together in a shared understanding of music as cultural practice; musicological research into compositional theory and processes informs the work of composers and vice versa; and specialists in historical performance are actively engaged with performance as consultants and/or practitioners.
With a staff complement that is now predominantly early and mid career, we look forward with confidence to the next phase of our development. We project a distinctive international presence in the discipline, one that combines acknowledged research expertise in dedicated areas with a commitment to the wider scholarly world and a clear sense of our role in the cultural and intellectual life of a capital city.
