Marcel Sagesser, PhD Music and Multimedia Composition, Successfully Defends Dissertation

Music and Multimedia Composition PhD Marcel Sagesser successfully defended his dissertation “Within the Grid: Inquiries in the Socio-Rhythmic Ambiguities of Mechanical Time.” In his doctoral research, he investigates rhythm with an interdisciplinary framework that encompasses the socio-cultural background of groove and the politics of playing along mechanical time.
