About Tobias Pontara

Research

Since the publication of his doctoral thesis in 2007 Tobias’s research has mainly been carried out within two different subject areas: film music and the philosophy of music. In his film-musical research Tobias has combined theoretical writings on central concepts and problems within film musicology with interpretations and analyses of specific films. His research within the field of music philosophy has primarily focussed on epistemological and methodological issues related to different kinds of musicological inquiry. Currently, Tobias tries to reconcile and synthesize these two research interests in the larger research project Creativity and Justification: The Epistemology and Methodology of Critical Interpretation in Musical Research.

Teaching

Tobias teaching covers most areas of musicology: music history, music theory and analysis, popular music, film music, contemporary composition techniques, music and cultural theory, the aesthetics and philosophy of music, feminist perspectives in musicology, music and media theory, opera and ethnomusicology. He has supervised a number of student essays on all levels and has also functioned as secondary supervisor for three doctoral theses. Tobias is very interested in pedagogical questions that concern how musicological teaching can be more research-oriented, problem-focussed and student-active.
