Michael Gallope has established a distinguished record of academic achievement for his work in the areas of music, philosophy, and the cultural history of the avant-garde. Professor Gallope’s recent book, Deep Refrains: Music, Philosophy, and the Ineffable (2017), has been described as an “impressive tour de force” and as reframing “music's contribution to critical discourse and humanistic inquiry.” By examining modern European philosophers’ writings on music in a way that spans traditional boundaries, Professor Gallope’s work elucidates the surprising centrality of music and sound to twentieth-century critiques of modern life.
