Chris Stover's research on improvisational interaction and rhythm, meter, and microtiming develops concepts from music theory, phenomenology, affect theory, queer and feminist theory, and philosophies of time and process. He is co-editor of the forthcoming volumes Rancière and Music (Edinburgh University Press, 2019) and Making Music Together: Analyzing Musical Interaction (University of Chicago Press, 2020) and editor of the new online journal Practice: the journal of the CTA Center for Creativity. Other areas of interest include theorizing and implementing 'artistic research' or 'research-creation', Brazilian popular music, the musics of Sun Ra and Cecil Taylor, and affect and play in music education. He is currently working on a monograph on temporal/relational processes in a class of African and Afro-diasporic practices he calls 'timeline musics'. Prior to arriving at RITMO he taught at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and Arizona State University, and he was Fulbright Teaching and Research Fellow in Brazil in 2015 and a Fellow of the Graduate Institute for Design, Ethnography, and Social Thought at the New School for Social Research in 2016-17. He is also very active internationally as an improvising trombonist and composer.
