Week 4 in summary
Congratulations on reaching the end of the course!

We hope that you’ve enjoyed the last four weeks, and that you’ve developed a new insight into how historical narratives are formed and developed through researchers and historians.

This week we’ve looked at the role archives can play in research and how the Gerhard Revealed team approached the task of digital archiving to help build an interactive resource that helps to communicate the different narratives of England’s electronic music experience through the experience of one of its forgotten pioneers.

It is through these researchers engaging with these kinds of archives that we are able to build our historical narratives, and the more resources we’re able to study the more detailed these historical narratives can become. We hope that this experience has helped to give you a greater appreciation, not only for electronic music, but for how we tell the stories of our musical cultures.
