Remy is an active academic researcher and co-author of the internationally-renowned musicology title Rock: The Primary Text: Developing a Musicology of Rock (3rd Edition) with leading music scholar Professor Allan F. Moore. The book was published in 2019 by Routledge. In his interdisciplinary PhD thesis – supervised by Professor Allan F. Moore (University of Surrey) and Dr Nanette Nielsen (University of Oslo) – Remy examines popular music listening experience drawing from musicology, social theory, ethics, and recent developments in cognitive science. Remy has presented his music research to national and international audiences. He has also given several invited talks on pedagogic practice including on ‘Teaching and Creativity’ for the 21st Century Music Practice Research Network, on the use of embodiment theory to inform teaching for the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at the University of Surrey, and on authenticity for the Learning and Teaching Conversations Network.

A graduate of the University of Surrey, Remy previously led the teaching of popular music analysis and hermeneutics there. In his time at Surrey, he also supervised popular music dissertations and gave lectures on jazz in film, John Coltrane’s improvisational strategies, and free improvisation. Before turning to musicological study, Remy specialised in guitar performance at Surrey and was a Pennington’s Performance Competition finalist. Remy has gigged as a rock, pop, folk, and country guitarist and his playing background continues to inform his academic practice.

Recent achievements and activities include receiving the 2018 Leeds College of Music ‘Most Inspiring Teaching’ award and tutoring on the House of Europe collaborative songwriting project hosted by Helsinki Metropolia University of Applied Sciences.
