About my research

I am currently working on field recording, its history, philosophy and material culture. My PhD dissertation, on which I currently work at the University of York, has an important focus on the amateur practice of field recording, mainly in France and the United Kingdom. Mostly forgotten today, a vivid practice of sound recording existed from the 1950s, with clubs, dedicated radio programmes, a specialised press, and contests – national and international.

I am also a musicologist, specialised in the music of Giacinto Scelsi, Morton Feldman, John Cage, La Monte Young, drone music, field recording, but also black metal and death metal.
