    An Interview with Tami Gadir

    Interview by Karolina Jawad

    Tami Gadir is commencing a new role as Lecturer in Music Industry at RMIT University in Melbourne Australia. Gadir has completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the University of Oslo and holds a PhD from the University of Edinburgh supervised by Simon Frith. Gadir’s research addresses the various mechanisms that promote or hinder participation in musical cultures, through the sounds, technologies, and cultures of contemporary, electronically-produced dance music. Such themes will feature in a forthcoming book with Bloomsbury Academic press, based on eight years of participant observation and interviews with DJs, producers, and clubbers in international electronic dance music communities. The book provides an expressly critical feminist-intersectional, anti-capitalist appraisal of dance music cultures as a counterpoint to the dominant utopian, celebratory interpretations of underground scenes by scholars, media, and fans. Gadir is a co-founding committee member of GeMus: Gender and Music Network and an active DJ. »Read more

In this talk I will present examples of studies of musical movement from both these perspectives and discuss some of the challenges and questions that arise when studying movements in music performance. »Read more
