The UC Santa Barbara Department of Music announces its new podcast, Through My Ears. With this podcast, graduate students are given the opportunity to sit down with their professors and ask them questions about their background, expertise, and current work in the field of music. The aim of this podcast is to highlight the diverse range of musical thought within the department, and bring awareness to its many programs. Ethnomusicology, theory, performance, and more are discussed, as listeners uncover the different motivations, aspirations, and values their teachers hold with regards to music.
The first episode stars the Chair of the Department of Music, Robert Koenig, and is hosted by Eugenia Siegel Conte, a PhD candidate in ethnomusicology. They discuss Robert’s childhood in the “cold, harsh winters” of Saskatchewan, Canada, recording at the famous Skywalker Sound studio in Marin County, and what surprises him most working as a collaborative pianist.
This podcast was produced by Connor Long and the UC Santa Barbara Department of Music. Intro and outro music was recorded at the Kerr Hall Sound Studio, performed by second-year music major Kaitlin Webster-Zuber.
