Johannes Hentschel studied music education, music theory, and Romance studies in Freiburg i. Br. and Lübeck. Proficient as an accordionist, singer and conductor, he is a lecturer for music theory at music universities. Last year, however, he has suspended this activity for the Digital Humanities Doctoral Program at the Swiss Federal Insititute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL). Supervised by Prof. Dr. Martin Rohrmeier at the Digital and Cognitive Musicology Lab (DCML), Johannes is preparing a thesis on score similarity, style discrimination and pattern extraction, while becoming an expert in corpus building and metadata organization.
