The Listening Experience Database Symposium 2014
20 November 2014, the Royal College of Music, London, UK
The keynote speaker will be Professor Andrew Prescott, AHRC Leadership Fellow in Digital Transformations.
The LED (Listening Experience Database) Project http://www.open.ac.uk/Arts/LED is a collaboration between The Open University and the Royal College of Music which focuses on the building and interrogation of a large database of personal listening experiences, on the premise that a mass of data about the unsolicited observations and feelings of ordinary listeners provides the basis for new approaches and fields of musical inquiry.
The symposium will be relevant not only to musicians and musicologists but also to historians and to library and archive professionals whose collections may hold relevant material, as well as anyone interested in digital humanities.
