Kevin Dahan is Professor of Music Sciences at De Montfort University, with a focus on computer music and electroacoustic music analysis. He earned his doctorate in 2005 from Université de Paris 8, under the direction of Horacio Vaggione, on the topic Formal Domains and Representations in the Composition and Analysis of Electroacoustic Music. He has diplomas in classical piano and jazz guitar, as well as harmony, counterpoint, electroacoustic composition, and jazz arrangement – reflecting his need to stay in a constant contact with musical practice. He is currently investigating aspects of music cognition, developing tools for analysis and composition, experimenting with Brain-Computer Interfaces, researching archives of Computer Music, composing, and finishing a book on musical time in relation with technology.
