Mr Stephen Whittington

Head - Sonic Arts

Elder Conservatorium of Music

Faculty of Arts

Eligible to supervise Masters and PhD - email supervisor to discuss availability.


My research includes non-traditional outputs - compositions, performances, public art works - as well as journal articles and book chapters. These stem from my broad musical interests in the performance of music (principally but not exclusively on the piano), modern and contemporary music, technology, and transcultural musical practices.
