Kjell Andreas Oddekalv
Kjell Andreas' research is centered around the analysis of the voice in rap music and its musical properties (as detached from its lyrical content). This necessitates a combination of traditional musicological analysis tools such as traditional notation and transcription, as well as more modern sound analysis tools (waveform-analysis, spectrogram) and more interdisciplinary approaches (lingustic tools such as phonological and prosodic analysis; poetry; cognition etc.). Another element to his research is that he is also an active producer and performer.
