個人簡歷

翁柏偉 (Weng, Po-wei)

(M.A., Ethnomusicology, Wesleyan University; M.A., Musicology, National Taiwan University) is a Ph.D. candidate in Ethnomusicology at Wesleyan University and an adjunct faculty at Central Connecticut State University. His musical career began with a ten-year professional training in Peking opera as both musician and actor. He was a Chinese flute major in the college and a winner of several Chinese flute competitions in Taiwan. Since he came to the United States in 2004, he has been an active performer of Chinese flute and Javanese gamelan and taught Peking Opera percussion at Wesleyan University. He is currently teaching Chinese Music Ensemble at Wesleyan University and World music course at CCSU.

As a scholar, Weng has published articles on Chinese operatic and traditional music in Taiwan. His M.A. thesis, Dynamic Interaction: Significance and Communication in Peking Opera Percussion Music (2006), explores the complex signification system of Peking opera percussion, examining how these musical conventions are contextualized into an active and interactive process of performance-building. Weng has also conducted extensive fieldwork on ritual and folk music of Penghu archipelago in southwestern Taiwan, which has resulted in two co-authored books: The Shao-Fa Ritual Music in the Penghu Archipelago (The Bureau of Culture, Penghu County, 2005) and Nanguan and Bayin Music in the Penghu Archipelago (BCPC, 2004). At the doctoral level, Po-wei Weng expands his research interests into film/TV music, music and technology, and music, globalization and post-colonialism. His recent research focuses on the soundscapes of Pili budaixi, a techno-mediated, televised puppetry, and the music in Chinese wuxia/kungfu movies. He has delivered papers on the related topics at major conferences in the field.
