Melodie Michel

Ph.D. Student

Early Music Performer, I travelled around the world to meet musician from different classical music cultures, creating discussions about common issues. Through my UCSC PhD I wish to create bridges between performance and research, early music and ethnomusicology, and between culturally informed performance practice and personal creativity.
