Seth Brodsky
Friday, April 05, 2019
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Associate Professor of Music and the Humanities, Seth Brodsky is the author of "From 1989, or European Music & the Modernist Unconscious" (University of California Press, Jan. 2017). His scholarly and critical work pursues a number of related lines of inquiry focusing on music of the 20th and 21st centuries, including the field of "composerly production;" the role of unconscious processes, particularly as figured in psychoanalytic discourse, in the making and experiencing of music; and repetition (in particular, thinking about aesthetic modernism less as a proverbial "search for the new" then as a larger project in resisting or "breaking" repetition, whether it be the repetition of forms, laws, and languages, of genres and styles, or of themes, patterns, motives, etc.)
