I am currently Associate Professor of English Literature at the University of Northern Colorado, where I work on literature, cultural studies, and literary and media theory, while increasingly introducing material and techniques from musicology and sound studies into my classes. A lifelong musician, I have become ever more interested, over the past two decades, in techniques that derive from tape music and electronic music—both as means of practice and objects of study. These interests are reflected in recent conference presentations on electroacoustic musicians and sound artists such as Francisco López and Alvin Curran. My approach to this material draws on ideas I first developed in working on eighteenth-century literature, which explore the ancient genre of the pastoral and ask the question of the separability of nature and culture in modernity.
