Dub Research

Late notice on this, but if you’re inna di Cambridge area, some dubwise research a gwaan this pm —

Michael Veal, professor of ethnomusicology at Yale, bassist, and the author of two interesting and informed books, Fela: The Life and Times of an African Musical Icon and Dub: Soundscapes and Shattered Songs in Jamaican Reggae* is delivering a lecture at Harvard this afternoon called “Technotopia 1969.”

Later in the evening (but on the early side of Beat Research — i.e., 9/9:30), Dr. Veal will be dropping some heavy dub weight on the E Room massive.
