Sylvie Tran

Music Theory

Sylvie Tran is a candidate in music theory. Originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, Sylvie holds a B.M. in flute performance from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Some of her research has involved analysis of performances of chamber music for wind instruments, exploring questions of embodiment, and, more broadly, the politics of arrangement and reorchestration. Also interested in questions of music and place in the United States, Sylvie studies musical portrayals of the American West and their intersections with race, gender, and the environment. In her free time, Sylvie enjoys hiking and running, cooking spicy food, and solving Rubik’s cubes.
