Valuing Electronic Music, 26 November 2014

Date: 26 November 2014
Time: 1.00pm-3.00pm
Venue: Arts Music Studio, The Open University Walton Hall, Milton Keynes (directions)

Speakers:
Daniel Allington (Department of Applied Linguistics and English Language, Open University);
Byron Dueck (Department of Music, Open University);
Anna Jordanous (School of Computing, University of Kent)

This seminar reports on an AHRC-funded research project combining ethnographic observation and interviewing in London’s electronic music scene with automated collection of quantitative data from the popular SoundCloud website. The presentation will reflect not only upon the findings of the research, which have implications for our understanding of cultural value more generally, but also upon the challenges and rewards of combining situated qualitative research with quantitative analysis of large datasets gathered online.

A sandwich lunch will be served. Please register for the event by emailing Matthew Pemberton (matthew.pemberton@open.ac.uk) by 21 November 2014.
