Bio

Kiku Day (BA, London; MFA, Mills; PhD, London) is currently a Teaching Fellow in ethnomusicology at SOAS, University of London, specializing in Japanese music and performance based research. Her PhD analyzed the changes in construction of the shakuhachi – a Japanese bamboo flute, and the creative process between performer and composer during the process of creating a new repertoire for the shakuhachi. She is highly involved in the international shakuhachi scene as a performer and co-founder of the European Shakuhachi Society. She is pursuing a research project on how Zen Buddhism is disseminated through the use of the shakuhachi and using new media such as the Internet – an interdisciplinary project between ethnomusicology, anthropology, globalization studies and the sociology of religion.
