    Jacob P. Cupps received his Bachelor of Arts in Music Theory & History from Anderson University in 2020, where he was given several Letters of Merit and the Faculty Award for Excellence. His research thus far has focused on the compositional logic and aesthetics of Arnold Schoenberg, particularly in relation to the early philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein. Jacob is interested in the interplay between philosophy and music throughout the twentieth-century at large, as well as the impact of the ‘music-as-language’ metaphor on current music theory scholarship.
