Bas Cornelissen

Lecturer | Researcher

Bas is a lecturer in computational musicology at the University of Amsterdam, interested in the cultural evolution of music, and how musical traditions across the world differ. Some people say 'music' should be a verb: something you do. It certainly is something Bas loves doing. During his masters he rediscovered singing and a few years later he found himself studying classical voice at Utrecht Conservatory. Despite his name, if anything, Bas is a baritone. Besides, he has worked as a graphic designer and web developer for over a decade.
