My research centers on popular music culture and, particularly, issues of genre, mediation and practice. I have pursued these interests in publications on Danish and Scandinavian hip-hop culture, musical censorship, format radio, music as a material practice along with issues of globalization and localization, drawing inspirations from cultural sociology, assemblage, affect, and actor network theory. In later years, I have been particularly concerned with genre formations and other types of categorization in the context of digitized music distribution, specifically Spotify, and how this involves processes of abstraction - in the algorithmic mediation of everyday listening practices. Besides interogating a non-reductive, 'new materialist' understanding of musical genre, this have raised quesrtions about methodology or how to research the musico-generic in-between of affect and agrotihms.
