Frederick Reece

I am a PhD candidate in Music at Harvard University, where I am completing a dissertation entitled “Ringing False: Music Analysis, Forgery, and the Technologies of Truth” supported by an Alvin H. Johnson AMS 50 Fellowship.

Situated at the intersections of history and theory, my primary research project addresses the phenomenon of musical forgery. I am interested in how perceived relationships between style, authorship, and authenticity have shaped human understanding of auditory culture.
