Bennett Hogg is a composer, improviser, and musicologist whose recent work is concerned with sound/music and place, and sound/music and nature. From 2012–14 he was PI of “Landscape Quartet”, and an AHRC-funded project focussed on participative sound art in natural environments, and in 2014 held a six-month Austrian Science Fund fellowship at Kunst Universität, Graz, working as a co-investigator on the “Emotional Improvisation” project, led by Dr Deniz Peters. His academic writing tends to come from a phenomenological orientation, but he has also drawn on psychoanalytic theories, and other hermeneutic theories. His creative practice covers a broad range of musics, from experimental environmental sound works, through electroacoustic composition, free improvisation, a more “conservative” voice in instrumental composition, and Northumbrian folk music. He is currently Senior Lecturer in Music at Newcastle University.
