MemberLars Christensen

I am interested in intersections of musical thought and understandings of the past across pre-modern Asia. My dissertation considers ritual music reform during the Northern Song dynasty (960-1127) as a means of bridging the distance from the ancients, using the perceived continuity of language, numbers, measurement, transmitted images, and recovered artifacts. I am also a performer of Javanese gamelan and numerous other kinds of music.
