Current Research

Philip Boast's research concerns phenomenology music performance - in particular his aim is to describe in phenomenological terms how rhythm as ordered movement and sound is enacted and experienced. This involves the application of the concept of temporality (phenomenologically understood) to the experience of rhythm, where rhythm can be understood as "movement-in-sound" or "order-in-[bodily]-movement" (Hamilton, 2011). There is also a correlated intention to employ the experience of rhythm so as to offer insight into phenomenological structure of experience.
