Kielian-Gilbert’s primary interests lie in connecting music experience to listeners’ emotional and intellectual responses and to social-material conditions and medium/media settings. She has explored relationships between music, philosophy, feminist theory, cultural and disability studies in thinking about how performative acts can shape, embody, and vivify music and music experience.
In addition to the music of composers such as Stravinsky and Britten, she has been working on a set of essays on music of recent women composers, and iconic, mythic and popular female figures in music.
