Having recently completed his PhD thesis on the role of noise and distortion in sound and music, Amsterdam-born musician and researcher Melle Kromhout is now a Postdoctoral Research fellow at the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Music. His work deals with the development of the physical concepts of Fourier analysis and sine waves and their defining role in the evolution of modern sonic and musical cultures. When he’s not teaching or publishing on music, sound, noise and popular culture, you can find him writing, recording and performing as a musician under numerous guises, including lo-fi impro-noise duo Glice.
Musical Material is a series of meetings on Sunday afternoons, during which national and international guests present their work and enter into dialogue. Specialists in the fields of music, art and/or reflection, test and discuss the details of their profession in an intimate setting. The series is a collaboration between West Den Haag & Rewire.
