Published by Juan Castrillon

His current research as UPENN PhD student is centered on developing a broader genealogy of the concept of “mystical audition,” in the Turk-Ottoman musical thought; and exploring aurality formation in Colombian Amazon musical practices, and the ways in which this process has been able to produce bodies, instruments, and repertoires and to amplify modalities of wisdom that both manage health and regulate spirituality. His methodology includes fieldwork, repatriation of old recordings to Amazon communities, Ottoman Music Theory books’ analysis, and discussions about sonic narratives, recording techniques and musical practices understood as an historical technics of subjective transformation’ process.
