Théophile Krosi-Doute, a PhD candidate in the University of Aberdeen's music department, has been selected as the next Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities (SGSAH) Researcher in Residence at Hospitalfield House.
Théophile will stay at the Arbroath residence for 2 weeks, between March 12th and March 26th, as part of Hospitalfield's Interdisciplinary Residency Program. Théophile’s research is based on the use of astronomy and mathematics in order to create new processes in composition. While at Hospitalfield, his research will focus on piece structure, as well as the inclusion of text in a piece of music. Théophile is supervised in his research by Professor Paul Mealor (Chair in Composition), and Professor David J. Benson (6th Century Chair in Pure Mathematics). His doctoral thesis will consist in a composition portfolio of 12 pieces drawing its inspiration from the Zodiac constellations, as well as a commentary.
