IAMM With You: In Conversation With Sebastian Hachmeyer

September 29, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT

IAMM Graficos-10-18

In a recent article about musical healing in the Bolivian Andes (Hachmeyer 2019), Sebastian Hachmeyer focused on performative and kinaesthetic aspects of collective flute music and dance as part of a place-based bodily understanding of healing in the Andes. He argued that health and sickness, but also music and dance, can be very different things depending on ontological perspective.

In this conversation, he wishes to turn to sound as a source of healing in the Andes. He will discuss sound within three spheres: Sound as Energy, Sound in Environment, and Sounds of (Dis)Harmony.
