• Dr Henry Reese

Henry Reese (him/he) is a historian, researcher and musician. He completed his History PhD without corrections at the University of Melbourne in 2019. Entitled “Colonial Soundscapes,” this thesis was the first cultural history of early sound recording in Australia. Using a novel methodology that combines the material and the cultural, this project knits the sensory, social, business and economic histories of sound recording in a modern settler society into a cohesive whole.
