    Senior Lecturer

    One of the interesting things about film music is not only that it works as a composition and as a part of the film narrative, but it causes people to react emotionally.

    Robert is Senior Lecturer in Music. His PhD is in the field of popular musicology and his research work is in the area of music and emotion. He is secretary of NIMiMS, a network of musicologists interested in thinking about music and sound, and he is also active as a composer and as a performer.
