Description

The dissertation puts forth the hypothesis that the current state of music historiography is in need of an introspective turn akin to the one taken around 1990 with the advent of New Musicology. This due to the fact that the digital consumption of music questions, and disrupts, the conventional perception of what music history is; what it can be; and how it 'is'. Through a digital ethnography of the digital music archive of the Danish Broadcast Corporation (DR), alongside media theoretical and philosophical-aesthetic discussions about the impact of digital archives as well as about digital culture in general, the project wishes to delineate how contemporary society perceives histories of music and how music historiography as a discipline should approach this.
