Jerome Kohl received his PhD from the University of Washington in 1981 with a dissertation on Serial and Non-Serial Techniques in the Music of Karlheinz Stockhausen from 1962–1968. He has published extensively on Stockhausen’s music, and currently has a book in press from Ashgate on Stockhausen’s early wind quintet Zeitmaße. He is the editor and chief translator of the English edition of Stockhausen’s Texts on Music, forthcoming from the Stockhausen-Verlag. For sixteen years he was the Managing Editor of Perspectives of New Music, for which he also guest-edited a two-part collection of articles on microtonal music, and a three-part 70th birthday Festschrift for Karlheinz Stockhausen in 1998–99. A follow-up Gedenkschrift is currently in press with the same journal. He has appeared several times as a studio guest on BBC Radio 3’s new-music programme Hear and Now, and in November 2008 was an invited speaker at the week-long Klang Festival, curated by Oliver Knussen at the Southbank Centre in London. In the summers of 2009, 2010, and 2011 he was invited to present analysis seminars on a number of Stockhausen’s works at the Stockhausen Courses for Music in Kürten, Germany, and in September 2010 he presented an invited lecture at the Boulder Stockhausen Festival at the University of Colorado, comparing Jackson Pollock’s paintings to Stockhausen’s Cosmic Pulses and the associated solos from the Klang cycle.
