Mauro Orsini Windholz Graduate Student: Musicology

I’m PhD candidate at the Musicology Program in Princeton University interested in Music Theory and Music cognition. I’m mostly interested in how humans derive meaning from harmonic structures in music. I also participate in work being done at the Music Cognition Lab.

I got my undergraduate education at the State University of Sao Paulo, in my hometown of Sao Paulo, Brazil, majoring in Composition. I have a Masters degree in Music from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro, where I did research on metaphors for the understanding of harmony. I play electric guitar, as well as a little piano, and have taught both for a long time. I’ve played in many bands and have experience as a gigging musician in Sao Paulo and Rio. I occasionally write music and I love jamming with friends.
