Music@Kingston University  invites expressions of interest from strong researchers to join our PhD Programme in October 2022. 

Staff in music have particular interests in:

  • Musicology – Music philosophy, Musical fan cultures, Popular Musicology, 20th Century European Music (especially French)
  • Music in multimedia – Film and television music, Gothic, horror, fantasy and science fiction music, Intercultural arts research, translation and transfer across media in contemporary music
  • Creative practice research – composition in particular technology enabled modes


The department is host to the newly established Visconti Studio. Tapping into contemporary love of retro sounds, the Visconti Studio does not just revive objects but actively revives analogue practices. This venture combines questions around cultural nostalgia, heritage studies, and material culture with the concrete musical practices of composition, recording, and production. Further information on http://www.visconti-studio.co.uk
