About

Luis-Manuel Garcia is a PhD candidate in Ethnomusicology at the University of Chicago. His doctoral project focuses on intimacy and affect in crowds, as the manifest on the dancefloors of Electronic Dance Music events (i.e., "house" music, "techno," etc.). This is a multi-sited ethnographic project that follows a translocal "scene," a circuit of moving bodies and music between Chicago, Paris, and Berlin. He has also begun preliminary work on his post-doctoral project, which takes as its object the recent emergence of “techno tourism” (i.e. tourism attached primarily to Electronic Dance Music nightlife). It will develop an account of this "techno tourism" as both a cultural and commercial phenomenon, and it will trace its entanglement with various forms of spatial and social mobility.
