Gabriel Ellis

Gabriel Ellis is a Ph.D. student in historical musicology. He writes about voices, technologies, and listeners in late medieval music and contemporary popular song. What do different notational systems allow composers to communicate with performers and listeners? Why is auto-tune such a popular aesthetic, as well as corrective, device? How have genres adjacent to hip-hop adopted and adapted its production techniques? Do drum machines have souls? He doesn't know, but he's working on it.

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.
