Martin Scheuregger is a Lecturer in Music. He takes an inter-disciplinary approach to research, combining musical analysis and composition as he explores notions of time and brevity in music. His current research is expanding on areas of his PhD thesis with a more extensive study of the music of George Benjamin. His research into issues of temporality continue to develop, with current work focussing on approaches to musical stasis in analysis and composition. Recent work has seen him work in areas of public engagement, as he brings together his expertise as a scholar and ensemble director to investigate new ways of effectively presenting contemporary music, in concerts, events, online and in recordings. The AHRC-funded ‘Score to Sound’ project introduced audiences to contemporary British music through presentations, performances and interviews, and with written and recorded material. Conference presentations have taken Martin across the UK and abroad, including recent papers at ISCM World Music Days, Wroclaw; CeReNeM, University of Huddersfield; Institute of Musicology at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences, Budapest; and the Orpheus Institute, Ghent. His music has been performed in the UK, Australia, Hong Kong, Germany and Holland, and in 2015 a new work was premiered at the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, supported by Sound and Music. His music has been recorded by Dark Inventions and Percussing, and published by University of York Music Press.

Music Analysis, Composition, Musicology, Contemporary Music, Musical Curation, Temporality
I am interested in hearing from potential research students in areas of contemporary and twentieth-century classical music, particularly with a focus on composition, practice-led research, musical analysis and temporality.
My external activities are focussed around the curation, direction, production and dissemination of music, particularly contemporary classical music. This work is seen through substantial projects run by contemporary music ensemble Dark Inventions. In this role I work to produce engaging projects from the grant application stage all the way through to delivering the events. My expertise is also seen in a studio setting where I work as a classical music producer, particularly involved with contemporary recordings.
