This is the research blog of Jason Stoessel. I am a music historian (aka. musicologist) and medievalist/early modernist at the University of New England, Australia, where I lecture and supervise research on topics in music history from c.800 to present day. My research looks at several topics relating to the music from the thirteenth to seventeenth centuries. Music encoding, data longevity and digital humanities is also part of my research. My current research projects include compositional techniques in the music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, especially canonic techniques (this project was funded from 2015 to early 2018 by the Australian Research Council, DP150102135); the art and science of canon in the music of early 17th-century Rome (this project is also funded by the Australian Research Council from early 2018 to 2021, DP180100680), music and emotions in late medieval Padua (with support from the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions); several smaller projects on sources of medieval music theory from the 14th and 15th centuries; and the computational analysis of Medieval and Renaissance Music.
