Matthew Schullman (Ph.D., Yale 2016) is a twentieth-century specialist whose work focuses on Luciano Berio’s Sequenzas and issues of pattern recognition, categorization, and repetition in music. His recent work—based on his dissertation (Rethinking Patterns: Associative Formal Analysis and Luciano Berio’s Sequenzas) and delivered at conferences across the country—is devoted to musical qualities and the formalization of a perceptually salient pattern type that he dubs the “Mode of Activity.” Other topics of interest to Schullman include gesture, texture, and meter.
