Glenn Gass is Rudy Professor and Provost Professor of Music in General Studies at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music. He teaches a series of courses he developed on the history of rock and popular music which were the first to be offered through a music school and are now the longest-running courses of their kind in the world. He has received several teaching awards at IU and is author of A History of Rock Music: The Rock & Roll Era (McGraw-Hill, 1994). Gass is a member of the Education Advisory Board of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. He is the recipient of grants in composition from the National Endowment for the Arts, Meet the Composer, and Indiana Arts Commission.
Gabriel Lubell is a composer, music theorist, and astronomer. His research focuses on issues of sound, space, and experience, with a particular interest in how albums operate as complete artistic works. He is currently developing a book on the topic and has presented papers about albums by the Beatles and Pink Floyd in print and at international conferences. His own music frequently draws on his background as a scientist—designed to both inform and arouse curiosity about the mysteries of the world, big and small. Lubell earned a doctorate in music composition from the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where he currently teaches. He also holds a master’s in astronomy from IU and an undergraduate degree from Vassar College. Lubell has also held teaching positions at Knox, Macalester, and Kenyon Colleges.
