The academic side of the lion in tweed.

If you are interested in the academic side of The Lion in Tweed, please direct your attention toward Sounding Out! the leading academic blog on sound studies, edited by Professor Jennifer Stoever-Ackerman of Binghamton University (SUNY) English Department and the BU Sound Studies Collective. I am also a member of the BU Sound Studies Collective and a regular contributor to Sounding Out! I have ideas about the future of performance which I am using The Lion in Tweed to investigate.

The first essay I have there is "Singing to my Imagined Listener". My second essay is "Head Games?: The Strategic View of Liveness and Performance." Both of these essays explore the interface between game theory and musical performance. The second describes my musical model as well.

I have an academic agenda that concerns musical performance from a game theory and rhetoric point of view. So I'm trying to use this art piece as a kind of case study in a new methodology. So, although it is not directly an academic piece, insights about the nature of communication and strategy that emerge from this will be.

If you are interested in my research, please email Andreas Duus Pape with your question or area of interest. For your information, here is my professional page at Binghamton University (SUNY).
