Professor Rebelo is focused on practice-based approaches in music and the sonic arts which address contemporary contexts and technologies. His research has been funded by the AHRC/ESRC Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research; in this context, two funded projects focus on the relationship between sound, everyday life and conflict transformation. Work under the umbrella of socially engaged arts practice has produced participatory projects in the UK, Portugal, Brazil and Mozambique.
Professor Rebelo’s practice includes composition, performance and installation and is developed in a critical and reflective context which aims to address our understanding of listening and interventionist research practices in sound.
