Title: 
Associate Professor of Music

Music Theory and Analysis (Ph.D. Harvard University 2000; M.A. Queens College, CUNY, 1995; B.S. Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1992). Research interests include the music of Béla Bartók, systems of coherence in tonally-dissolute and atonal musics of the early twentieth century, mathematical and computational models of musical structure (including transformational theory and neo-Riemannian theory), and historical music theories. Mr. Gollin 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 Intégral. 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 Bartók's music with insights provided by Bartók's ethnomusicological work
