Research interests

Most of my published work has engaged with the study of hip-hop music and culture, though I am now working on a project that looks at the jazz composer Maria Schneider and digital patronage the ArtistShare record label. I hope to expand my research on hip-hop music and automobility into a larger social and musico-analytical history of music and automobility in the twentieth century.

Other research interests include:

  • popular music studies (especially hip-hop)
  • musical borrowing
  • film music
  • jazz
  • digital patronage
  • music and geography
  • mobility and sound studies
  • the analysis of record production
