Introduction
With a clear focus on music analysis since my MPhil, during my PhD I employed cutting-edge computational techniques for the analysis of a large corpus of recordings, with a view to contributing to formal theory. Although applied to a different corpus, the analytical methods I learnt while in Cambridge are proving to be critical in my postdoctoral perio. In it, I am designing a cluster of tools for data extraction and analysis of various parameters (including harmony, melody, rhythm, and texture.

La excepcional acogida de las obras de Pietro Metastasio en el siglo XVIII, en Europa y en la península ibérica en particular, está ampliamente documentada. Debido a este éxito sin parangón, es posible afirmar que España y Portugal participaron de los gustos y redes artísticas internacionales del momento. Sin embargo, esta internacionalización ha d...

This report describes the open-source Recorded Brahms Corpus (RBC) dataset, as well as the methods employed to extract and process the data. The dataset contains (micro)timing and dynamic data from 21 recordings of Brahms's Cello Sonatas, Opp. 38 and 99, focusing on note and beat onsets and duration, tempo fluctuations, and dynamic variations. Cons...

Some complex musical parameters might be especially difficult to understand for someone with no theoretical expertise in music. Musicians and music scholars alike normally evaluate such parameters visually by departing from scores, which present the musical events at once. Yet for the understanding of such symbolic representations, musical training...
Conference Paper
The correlation between specific musical features and the expression of emotions has been cornerstone in musicological studies, from score to empirical analysis. In DIDONE we are digitising and studying a total of ca. 4000 opera seria arias on libretti by Pietro Metastasio. The corpus, mostly neglected so far, uniquely puts at our disposal numerous...

Thesis
Full-text available
From the mid nineteenth century onwards, musical form has primarily been defined in terms of predetermined paradigms which ostensibly provide a framework for organic, hierarchically ordered musical materials. Despite its pervasive presence in music theoretical writing, however, this Formenlehre tradition is not universal in music theory. Since anti...
Article
Many musicians performing an ensemble work would aim to achieve good, if not perfect, synchronisation of timing for the sake of an effective rendition (McCaleb, 2014). In this respect, Pau Casals’ and Mieczysław Horszowski’s 1935 recording of the second movement of Johannes Brahms’s F major Cello Sonata, Op. 99, is certainly intriguing, as asynchro...

Diseñar recursos docentes que acerquen al estudiante actual formatos previos de consumo musical como la grabación mecánica (fonógrafo, gramófono) o la magnetofónica. Realizar una comparativa entre los métodos analógicos y digitales de grabación, analizando en qué medida han influido en el discurso musical que se genera. Desarrollar propuestas didácticas destinadas a la integración del estudio de la evolución de la tecnología relacionada con las prácticas de producción musical en los estudios de Musicología y otras áreas afines.
