Longyear Lecture to Explore Music in Relation to the Senses

Published: Feb 12, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Feb. 12, 2013) — The multitalented Tomie Hahn will be speaking on the sensual elements of music as part of the Rey M. Longyear Lecture Series at the University of Kentucky. Hahn's lecture will begin 3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, in the Niles Gallery of the Lucille C. Little Fine Arts Library and Learning Center. The workshop is free and open to the public.

 

Hahn’s workshop is titled "Sensual Orientations – Connecting Sound and Movement" and will explore the sense of orientation, through disorientation. Hahn will introduce "banding" — an activity she developed to playfully develop awareness of self and others. "Banding" is a practice that urges participants to look at how they can explore issues of connection in movement and sound. Those planning to attend and participate in this workshop are asked to wear comfortable clothing suitable for movement.

 

The Rey M. Longyear Lecture Series is funded by a generous gift from Mrs. Katherine Longyear. Guest lectures and colloquia are sponsored by the Division of Musicology and Ethnomusicology within the School of Music at the College of Fine Arts, and by FOCUS, the UK Music Graduate Students Association. The series has featured world-renowned artists, professors, and musicologists as speakers such as Leo Treitler, Kay Norton, Kuo-Huang Han and many more.

 

Hahn is an artist and ethnographer. She is a performer of shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute), nihon buyo (Japanese traditional dance), and experimental performance. Her research spans a wide range of area studies and topics including: Japanese traditional performing arts, Monster Truck rallies, issues of display, the senses and transmission, gesture, and relationships of technology and culture.

 

Hahn, an associate professor in the Arts Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, has written a book, "Sensational Knowledge: Embodying Culture through Japanese Dance" (Wesleyan University Press), and was awarded the Alan P. Merriam prize from the Society for Ethnomusicology for her work.
