Field and Namazi Present at Society for Ethnomusicology's Annual Meeting

Nov 2, 2017

Garrett Field and Behzad Namazi at the  2017 Society for Ethnomusicology's 62nd Annual Meeting,  in Denver, CO.
 
 
 
On October 27, Dr. Garrett Field and Behzad Namazi presented papers at the Society for Ethnomusicology's 62nd Annual Meeting held in Denver, on a panel entitled Facets of Improvisation, and co-hosted by the University of Denver, the University of Colorado Boulder, and Colorado College.
 
Dr. Field is an Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology/Musicology in the School of Interdisciplinary Arts and School of Music. His paper was entitled entitled Rhythmic Designs with Solfège: Svara Kalpana in South Indian Karnatak Music Performed by Mandolin U. Shrinivas. In this paper Field explored how one musician performed the rhythmic-melodic form of improvisation in South Indian classical music known as svara kalpana. 
 
Namazi is a Ph.D. candidate in the scholar/artist track of the School of Interdisciplinary Arts, studying ethnomusicology and music composition. His paper, entitled The Radif as Musical Syntax: A Case Study on the Revival of the Qanun in Persian Music, investigates the ways in which the radif (the canonic body of repertoire in Persian traditional music) functions as a system of melodic governance for improvisation. Namazi developed this paper in a seminar entitled Interdisciplinary Approaches to Music and Language, taught by Dr. Garrett Field.
