lectures-symposia, world-music
Ethnomusicology Archive – Room 1630 – Schoenberg Music Building

Join us for our next Archive Wednesday as world-renowned Irish fiddler and researcher Gerry "Fiddle" O'Connor talks about his recently published tune book, "The Rose in the Gap: Dance Music of Oriel from the Donnellan Collection." The book is a new edition in modern notation of tunes from the South Ulster area of Ireland, first seen in an article by Rev. Luke Donnellan, published in 1909 in the County Louth Archaeological Journal.

Later that day, at 6:00 PM, join us for a workshop and master class with Gerry. He will also be available for individual lessons on fiddle.

Test Kitchen: Decolonize Music Theory through Multi-Sensory Writing with Nina Eidsheim and Juliette Bellocq
What if we listened to music with our tongue, feet, or skin? In this interactive event, we will experiment with multi-sensory experience of music. Engaging with a writing model from PEER Lab graphic designer Julliet Bellocq and founder Nina Eidsheim can help us relate to our senses more fully, and deepen our relationship with music and ourselves.
