Robbie Beahrs is an ethnomusicologist, sound artist, and acoustic ecologist.
His fieldwork in Russia, Mongolia, Kazakhstan, and the United States links archival research with collaborative ethnography, voice-driven performance practice, filmmaking, and soundscape art. His current research projects explore genealogies of throat-singing in the Sayan-Altai Mountains of Inner Asia, interspecies listening and voicing in Tyva and western Mongolia, and vibrational sensing with Russian cosmonauts and American astronauts during long-duration space flight.

My current research explores issues of race and ethnicity, performance/construction of identity, cultural memory, trauma, and history as they intersect in lautareasca music, a Romani musico-oral tradition of Romania. Before coming to Stanford, I earned a B.A. in Music from Amherst College and spent a year researching and playing lautareasca music in Romania on a Fulbright. Other areas of interest include applied ethnomusicology, alternative epistemologies, critical theory and digital humanities.
