"Return to Sender: Channeling Recursion in Schubert's Die schöne Müllerin." Roger Moseley's recent research focuses on intersections between keyboard music, digital games, and the diverse ways in which they can be played. In 2017, his first book, "Keys to Play: Music as a Ludic Medium from Apollo to Nintendo," received the American Musicological Society's Otto Kinkeldey Award, which recognizes "a musicological book of exceptional merit by a scholar beyond the early stages of his or her career." Moseley is currently working on his second book, "Romantic Artifacts: The Technological Disclosure of Nineteenth-Century Music," which subjects the songs of Schubert, the piano music of Chopin, the chamber music of Fauré, and the orchestral music of Brahms to media-theoretical and music-analytical scrutiny. Roger Moseley is Associate Professor in the Department of Music at Cornell University.
