PhD Student in Ethnomusicology
David Farrow is an American researcher, sound artist, and ethnomusicologist based in New York City. Trained in cultural and media studies, Farrow researches the limits of do-it-yourself music scenes' cultural and economic autonomy within capitalist urban development. Farrow's artistic work employs noise, synthesis, and field recordings to explore how sound and listening practices construct political space. Farrow's interests increasingly lie at the intersection of policing, repression, and the politics of solidarity.
