Samuel’s doctoral research is focused upon semi-formal musical performances taking place in the public spaces of Chinese cities. This interest was developed during four years spent living in the country, and involves the video analysis of interactions between performers and audiences, examination of appreciation rituals, and the ways in which money plays a part in performances. The research is geared towards exploring community and social bonding as expressed and shaped through performance.
