Music, education, new media and computing: My recent publications

This past year has been very productive. My wife and I had the great opportunity to spent the first 5 months of 2012 on pre-tenure sabbatical leave in Australia working with colleagues at the University of Queensland, Griffith University, Queensland University of Technology, and the University of Melbourne. From June through mid-August, we travelled throughout Europe visiting colleagues, and I presented papers and workshops at various colloquia and conferences along the way. It was a wonderful gift from UMass Lowell to have the time away to think, research, collaborate, teach, learn, and write.

Here are links to writings I’ve published since December 2011:
