This is a project-based field and laboratory course aimed at capturing and documenting Michigan folk, ethnic, and immigrant music. Using state of the art audiovisual laboratory facilities based in the Ann and James Duderstadt Center, students will assist with the final stages of a feature video documentary on Michigan’s rich musical heritage as well as launching projects of individual interest. Working individually and in teams, students will acquire basic skills for conducting interviews, audio/video capture and editing, archiving, and learn about the ethical and practical issues associated with ethnomusicological fieldwork. Interested students from SMTD-PAT and Musicology; School of Art and Design; School of Information; and LSA Screen Arts and Culture, American Culture, Anthropology, and Communications are encouraged to enroll.
