Candidates for President

Edward Gollin

Edward Gollin teaches at Williams College. He has spoken at numerous conferences, and his articles have appeared in the Journal of Music Theory, the Journal of the American Musicological Society, Theory and Practice, and Integral. He recently led a workshop for theory professionals on transformational music theory at the Mannes School in New York. He is currently working on a book that integrates tonal, serial, and transformational analytical perspectives on Bartok's music with insights provided by Bartok's ethnomusicological work. Gollin is co-editor, along with Alexander Rehding, of The Oxford Handbook of Neo-Riemannian Music Theories, which won the SMT Citation of Special Merit in 2011. He holds a B.S. from MIT, an M.A. from Queens College, CUNY, and a Ph.D. from Harvard University. Gollin has been an active member of NECMT for years, having previously served as Treasurer from 2005 to 2009, and most recently as chair of the NECMT program committee in 2012.

Ian Quinn

Ian Quinn teaches at Yale University. Central themes of Quinn's work are music cognition and the foundations of music-theoretic practice. His current work interrogates the historically resilient analogy between music and language, with a particular focus on applications of computational linguistics to models of harmonic syntax, and to the problem of key-finding. His earlier work in mathematical music theory deals with the classification of the horizontal and vertical building blocks of music - melodies and chords - focusing on careful critique of the models that mathematically inclined music theorists have used in the last few decades. His theory of abstract (non-tonal) chord classification was published serially in Perspectives of New Music as "General Equal-Tempered Harmony" and won the Outstanding Publication Award from the Society for Music Theory in 2009. This article completes the project Quinn began with his article "Listening to Similarity Relations," which won SMT's Emerging Scholar Award in 2004. Quinn edited the Journal of Music Theory from 2004 to 2011 and serves on the editorial board of the Journal of Mathematics and Music, which launched in 2007. Quinn holds a B.A. from Columbia University and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the Eastman School of Music. Quinn has presented regularly at NECMT, has previously served on the program committee (2006), and most recently was an invited panelist on music cognition (2013).


Candidate for Treasurer (uncontested)

Justin Lundberg

Justin Lundberg teaches at the New England Conservatory. His research focuses on voice leading, the analysis of post-tonal music, transformational theory, computer applications for music representation and visualization, and Schenkerian analysis. He has presented on these topics at meetings of the Society for Music Theory, the Music Theory Society of New York State, and Music Theory Southeast. He holds a B.M. from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, an M.A. from the Pennsylvania State University, and a Ph.D. from the Eastman School of Music. He has served a term as Treasurer for NECMT, and is running for reappointment to a second consecutive term.
