Greg Jenkins is a lecturer in Music in the School of Creative Practice, Creative Industries Faculty. He has worked as a composer and producer of electronic music. Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s he experimented with blending electro-acoustic aesthetics with the then emergent forms of electronic dance music. Performances included the Brisbane Festival Fringe, Shock of the New, Wild Front Ear, Xstatic, and Electrofringe.
During this time, Greg also worked as programmer and producer of music festivals and event, most notably as a co-curator of the Small Black Box experimental music series. He has also managed the co-delivery of innovative undergraduate, coursework post graduate, and research higher degree programs delivered in conjunction with public events such as the REV (Real, Electronic, Virtual) festival, Electronic Music Performance Symposia, Escape concert series, and Australasian Computer Music Association Conferences.
More recently, Greg has worked as an academic manager and curriculum developer. From 2012 – 2016 he was responsible for the coordination of all undergraduate studies in the school of Media, Entertainment and Creative Arts. Throughout this time, he was also the lead user representative for the design, construction and implementation of stage 2 of the QUT Creative Industries Precinct at Kelvin Grove. In this role, Greg was responsible for ensuring the $80 million music, dance, drama, and visual arts facility incorporated world leading practices, in order to enable it to be situated as the centre of interdisciplinary teaching and research practices for the creative arts.
Greg’s current role is as the academic coordinator of the Ars Electronica Futurelab Academy QUT, a joint venture with the Ars Electronica Futurelab (Linz, Austria) that seeks to create new layers of knowledge creation through transdisciplinary practice. His current research is focussed on the benefits of an approach to curriculum design and delivery that encourages students to build, maintain and modify their own personal knowledge networks. As Chairperson of the University Appeals Committee and a member of University Academic Board, Greg also plays an active role in University governance and policy development, notably in the areas of Academic Integrity.
