Mindful playing: a practice research investigation into shakuhachi playing and meditation

is the title of the practice research article I have in the current special issue of Ethnomusicology Forum 31.1: 143-59. I have used micro-phenomenological interview technique to do auto-ethnography on how I may play shakuhachi as meditation – something that has been important historically to the shakuhachi community. It is a nerdy research project and has as the main aim to explore how we speak about what we musicians do the most: practice, explore and experiment alone.
I am grateful to the special issues editors: Muriel Swijghuisen Reigersberg, Aaron Corn & Brett Pyper and the editorial team: Phil Alexander, Alexander Cannon, Henry Stobart & Frances Wilkins.
