Philosophy of Music

My name is Jared and I am a recent graduate of Bates College with a degree in philosophy (specifically contemporary political philosophy). Toward the end of my education, I studied more M&E and found this area of philosophy to be significantly more interesting. Within the last year I launched a music/ philosophy blog called Playtonic Dialogues (shameless pun) where I aim to report and promote conversations that touch on these two topics.  I write and administrate Playtonic Dialogues as well as write for a number of music websites. I believe there is a lack of substantive discourse in music journalism and I'd like to develop a style and voice to communicate the analytical studies taking place with music. If anyone has suggestions for the blog, interesting research within these topics, or any other questions or comments, I'd really appreciate the input.
