Position:  University Lecturer in Ethnomusicology, Faculty of Music  

Bio: 

My research and media-making practice focus on intersections of sound and culture, especially in Turkey and its diasporic communities. I’m currently completing an ethnographic book and filmmaking project, Pathways to God: The Islamic Acoustics of Turkish Berlin. I’ve written on YouTube music and digital cinema, as well as the history of audio recording (especially tape). My audiovisual work is informed strongly by phonography/non-fiction sound art and sensory ethnography.
