Naomi Waltham-Smith’s work lies at the threshold between music theory, recent European philosophy, and sound studies. A theorist of listening, she is interested in how aurality is implicated in politics of community and is paradigmatic for the ways we relate to others. Her work engages with instrumental music of the long eighteenth century, French deconstruction, recent Italian thought on biopolitics and immaterial labor, Kafka, and casinos.
