Local Music in Cultural Heritage Institutions: Research from the Sounds of Home Projec
MetadataShow full item record
Local music collections inform national histories, represent the musical diversity of our communities, and provide evidence of musical and social developments. This presentation discusses efforts to connect local music collections beyond the walls of the library – through outreach, marketing, research, and online platforms - and invites consideration of their significance to regional, national and international audiences. Sean Luyk (University of Alberta) provides an overview of current research from the Sounds of Home local music research project, including a summary and analysis of the findings of an online questionnaire distributed in 2018, initial findings from interviews conducted with local music collectors, and current experimentation with geovisualization methods to map local music collections (this portion of the presentation completed by Carolyn Doi and Sara Rutley, University of Saskatchewan).
