Joyce Lightbody: 2006-07 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

I received a faculty development grant in 2006 in support of travel to Kathmandu and Nepal. The purpose of the journey was to record music created by the local people, as part of my study and professional practice.

From Kathmandu I departed on an 18 to 20 day trek with my guide, Dawa Sherpa and a porter, Rinzin Gale to the Langtang Valley, Nepal. The experiences that unfolded while interacting with the people as an artist/researcher as well as the recordings themselves have been invaluable to my creative practice and my teaching life. Excerpts from the audio files will be available online in the future (with the generous assistance of Kathleen Forrest).
