Academia Profile

Biographical details

I am a musicologist, specialising in the study of Australian Indigenous and immigrant musics and in the digital humanities (particularly archiving and repatriation of ethnographic field recordings as a site of interaction between researchers and cultural heritage communities). I have studied community music practices through fieldwork in Australia, Italy and the Philippines. Themes of my research include analysis of musical action in place, the language of song, and the aesthetics of cross-cultural musical practice. I also publish on theoretical issues, including analysis of non-Western music, and research implications of digital technologies.

Since its inception, I have helped develop the cross-institutional research infrastructure facility PARADISEC (the Pacific and Regional Archive for Digital Sources in Endangered Cultures), whose Sydney arm is since 2013 based at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music. I am a Research Affiliate of the ARC Centre of Excellence for the Dynamics of Language and of the Research Unit for Indigenous Languages at the University of Melbourne.

Research interests

  • The intersection of music and society
  • Italian music
  • Australian Indigenous music
