He is interested particularly in investigating how individuals deploy music and dance in their personal lives to articulate ethnic, gender and national identities.

At UC Davis, Spiller teaches world music classes and graduate seminars and directs the department of music’s gamelan ensemble. His latest book, Javaphilia: American Love Affairs with Javanese Music and Dance (University of Hawai’i Press, 2015), chronicles the careers and motivations of 20th-century North Americans who were attracted to Javanese music and dance to develop a better understanding of American Orientalism and the subtleties of identity formations. The book was awarded SEM’s Bruno Nettl Prize in 2016.
