The “R” is for Rosenlund. I always indicate my middle name to distinguish myself from the film production manager Søren Frimodt-Møller, who is, by the way, a distant relative of mine. Incidentally, I have also been working within film and television - part of my university studies was in applied visual communication, and I worked for about 10 months as a technical assistant at the Danish national tv-station, TV2. My major is, however, philosophy.

When doing philosophy, I often try to integrate my creative and aesthetic interests, especially music (but also topics such as humor, music videos and more). I have played the violin (on and off, I admit) since age 7, written for the Danish genre magazine (2006-2011), and until 2013, maintained the Internet radio station, Random Thoughts. I also experiment with writing fiction, composing, and drawing when I have the time.

From 2007 to 2010, I worked (and studied) as a PhD fellow (salaried PhD student with teaching and administrative tasks) at the University of Southern Denmark, Odense. In my PhD dissertation I try to describe how music ensemble interaction is exemplary of the importance of norms and personal commitment in group coordination in general.

Since then I have been partially affiliated with the University of Southern Denmark as the Managing Editor of JMM: The Journal of Music and Meaning, and with Aalborg University Esbjerg since 2011, first as guest researcher, then external lecturer, later Assistant Professor and Associate Professor, with main teaching and research at the Medialogy education. Since August 2017, I am, however, employed at the Department for Planning as Associate Professor in Problem-Based Learning and Engineering Education.

You can see my full CV here. If you are writing something about my work, feel free to lift out some sentences from the older, more propaganda-like biography at my previous website.
