Via a public online survey, we will ask respondents to optionally provide demographic data – age range, gender, current town/city, and employment sector – as well as details of 10 songs that ‘represent’ them in some way – i.e. their favourite songs, or something biographical. Respondents will not be asked for their name or contact details. This data will be used to create visualisations showing relationships between the musical and demographic data provided, and potentially to make inferences about the relationship between musical taste and identity.,
There are various practicalities we are aware of at this stage, and also aware that others may emerge as we develop the project. Current issues are: Web hosting and design, copyright issues (image and audio perhaps), data handling, and managing even workloads across skill bases.
