On the year 2022 I finished my PhD in ethnomusicology for the University of Aveiro under the title Aesthetics of sound in Japanese hōgaku. Ethnomusicology and Artistic Research in dialogue.
On it I researched on the aesthetic dimension of Japanese hōgaku both from ethnomusicology an artistic research. This thesis should be understood as the sum of three elements of equivalent importance: a text, the recontextualized transdisciplinary performative piece Kūkaku, and the audio-visual documentary Painting in the void. The three elements constitute a unity and the narration would be incomplete without all of them. This was an extensive, challenging and enriching project that took several years of my life throughout the end of the 2010’s and the beginning of the 2020’s and was only possible thanks to the generous collaboration of many people. To all of them my gratitude. All the materials relative to the PhD can be found here.
