「地球の音楽」が出版された

I have a short essay in Chukyu no ongaku (Tokyo University of Foreign Studies Press, 2022) about music in the United Kingdom. It is more personal essay than research paper, but it signals the beginning of a more active focus on music research alongside my composing activities, something I have discussed in my music blog. The chapter is in Japanese (see the publisher’s page here).

New website: War Memory Tourism

I have created a new website called War Memory Tourism. This website is a research and teaching resource that is designed as an online appendix for my various research projects and an interactive reading list for my students. Do check it out!
