Johannes Hentschel studied music education, music theory, and Romance studies in Freiburg i. Br., Lübeck, and Helsinki. Proficient as an accordionist, singer and conductor, he is a lecturer for music theory at music universities. In 2018, however, he 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 diachronic style change in music while deepening his knowledge in corpus building and metadata organization.
