I’m here! In the blogosphere. Still. Hello.
So, IRL I’m six months into my yearlong fellowship as a postdoc and it is every bit as transitional and challenging (yet also enjoyable and oddly comfortable/comforting) as they said it would be.
I’m based in Singapore for the foreseeable future so I am no longer offering regular Vocal Meditation classes, nor performing with Vibrators, in Manila. Not to worry: I’m still as hippy-dippy as ever lol. I’ve teamed up with the wonderful Christina Shiu of Be Mindful Living to offer a Vocal/Singing Bowls Meditation session next month—so the happy vibrations and healing tones are forthcoming.
In addition to working on a cluster project at my institute and turning my dissertation into journal articles (and thinking about the kind of book I want to write out of it) I’ve got a few new artistic and academic projects in the pipeline. I’ll be blogging about that stuff in the future. In the meantime, please check out:
- An essay I wrote for Dissertation Reviews on the ethnographic work I did for my PhD, interviewing Filipino musicians on cruise ships, and
- A review of my PhD thesis by ethnomusicologist Dr. Stephanie Ng, also on Dissertation Reviews.
If you’re still hangin’ out with me here, thanks.
