Symposium and concert on completion of doctorate
November 23rd, 2013
Conservatorium van Amsterdam, Oosterdokskade 151
The symposium and concert held around my PhD, 'Karnatic Rhythmical Structures as a Source for New Thinking in Western Music' was a great success. There was a full day of presentations and discussions chaired by Michiel Schuijer (AHK), culminating in a round table, and double evening concert.

Symposium speakers were fellow teachers of the programme 'Contemporary Music through Non-Western Techniques', David de Marez Oyens, and Jos Zwaanenburg; Peter Wiegold (University of Brunel); and special guest Miles Okazaki (New York). B.C. Manjunath (mrindangam) and Dr. Mysore Manjunath (violin) lead a Karnatic seminar.
