Georg Predota

For some reason, bios always follow a predictable and rather boring format. Dr. Georg A. Predota holds degrees from blah, blah, blah, and university appointments from blah, blah, blah. His research interests and extensive publication record include blah, blah, blah and blah. By now, you are undoubtedly fast asleep! While these scholarly pursuits and achievement certainly exude a veneer of knowledge and authority—probably better call it perspective—they have no way of adequately capturing the enourmous sphere of human activities related to music that are of keen interest to me. What I can offer is an insatiable appetite for anything related to music, a blazing curiosity that is looking beyond agendas, attitudes and platitudes, the power and experience of razor-sharp observation and differentiation, and a smoldering passion for sharing my thoughts with those interested. Of course, if you’d like to see my professional qualifications, I’ll be happy to send you my CV.
