About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Music
Location Ann Arbor, Michigan, United States
Introduction A graduate student in music and anthropology writing a dissertation about music in Moravia, the eastern third of the Czech Republic. At some point, the Czech Republic's "second city" (that would be Brno) captured my attention, and I've since been blogging about events, arts, music, and other stuff—basically whatever interests me in and around the cityscape. I'm not living in Brno now, but I keep up with the cultural pulse from afar as best I can.
Interests traditional music in Moravia, orchestral music, structuralism, gamelan, postmodernism, polka, British brass bands, ethnomusicology, cimbalom, Brunensiana, Brno, food, baking, graduate school, fieldwork, disseration research, noodles, architecture, queer studies, transport, gender
Favorite Movies Nuda v Brne, Bored in Brno, Moravek
Favorite Music Bernstein, Berg, Janacek, Gershwin
Favorite Books E.M. Forster, Zadie Smith, White Teeth, Dave Eggers, John Rowell, Mysic of Your Life, Michael Chabon, Mysteries of Pittsburgh

Come up with some possible band names for your group that features a washboard and a styrofoam tuba.

Well, I don't see what's so odd about that, except that it wouldn't be a tuba, it'd be a styrophone. We'd obviously play Czech-Cajun style music because my band would have a cimbalom.
