Martin Scheuregger is a Lecturer in Music in College of Arts. 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.
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, Wrocław; 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 published by University of York Music Press.
