Floris Schuiling has been awarded a Veni postdoctoral award from the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO). The Veni grant allows promising young Dutch researchers to develop innovative ideas over three years. Schuiling's project, entitled 'Notation Cultures in Contemporary Music', proposes a comparative ethnographic study to investigate how the use of different music notation systems informs ways of conceptualizing music as a cultural and creative practice.
Schuiling completed a PhD in music at Cambridge under the supervision of Nicholas Cook. He holds degrees in musicology and philosophy from Utrecht University in the Netherlands, where he is currently a lecturer, and where he will pursue his postdoctoral research.
