SHOWCASE: Jun Zubillaga-Pow

Jun is currently a research postgraduate at King's College London, working in the field of Musicology and Critical Theory. After graduating from the University of Birmingham, Jun completed a Masters in Critical Methodologies and obtained an overall distinction for his work on Modern French Theory and musical reception. As an expansion of his Masters dissertation, Jun’s research thesis will be a formulation of a new theory of understanding aural perception via Lacanian psychoanalysis and Transcendental philosophy.

Other than his research interests in music psychology, Jun has presented papers on sexual politics, electronic dance culture and the contemporary history of music in Singapore, Argentina and France. He has been recognised by the National Arts Council for his ongoing research, and is also supported for two other projects: (1) a volume on the history of art music in post-Independence Singapore and (2) an assessment of Malay Traditional Music in recent Singapore.

Having been producer and organiser of various events at collegiate and national level, Jun plans to organise more events related to the historical and political aspects of Singapore. Other than being a member of the Composers Society of Singapore, Jun has participated in forums concerning issues of cultural policy, sexual discrimination and equal rights for disabled children.

Jun is preparing to put up a recital of 20th-century piano music in 2010.
