Ph.D. Candidate

Involving himself in the music scenes of Brooklyn, N.Y. over the past decade, Mike Levine has utilized a dual background in academic research and web-based application technologies to support sustainable local music scenes. His research now takes him to Cuba, where he studies artists circulating music in this vibrant and controversial space. Mike looks forward to contributing towards a greater understanding of how artists distribute music via Havana’s USB-based, ‘people-powered’ internet, called el paquete semanal, amidst challenging political and economic circumstances.
