Ethnomusicology Lab – Room B544 – Schoenberg Music Building

Lecture by Clarence Henry (Ph.D. UCLA, 2000)
Applied Ethnomusicology, Newark, New Jersey

"Having worked in academia and in the private sector of the legal field, I reflect on how ethnomusicology has informed my ethnographic experiences of music and cultures. In this paper, I discuss aspects of my current research project that focuses on the topics of music, law, the courts, ethnomusicology, and ethnographic research."
- Clarence Bernard Henry

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.
