A native of Greenville, S.C., Brian C. Moseley is a doctoral candidate
at the City University of New York's Graduate Center. Though his
research interests are broad and include sketch study, 19th-century
German rhythmic theory, and recent popular music, he is most interested
in the music of the 20th- and 21st centuries, especially music composed
after 1945. His recent work, much of which is an extension of his Ph.D.
dissertation, establishes a methodology for constructing geometrical
spaces capable of modeling musical form in post-tonal music.
Moseley has presented research about the music of George Crumb, John
Harbison, Webern, and Bartok at regional, national, and international
conferences. Recently, his paper "Transpositional Combination and the
Analysis of Form in George Crumb's 'Lux Aeterna' " was published in
"Musical Currents from the Left Coast."
