Thesis Camp- Hi! My name is Bexx. I’m a Musicology Masters student at Temple University working on my thesis, and I am so excited that my project, “Aural Substance: An Ethnographic Exploration of Burn Soundscapes” begins at Wickerman 2016! My project will identify, record, describe, organize, and analyze the soundscapes of burns. After these events, I will conduct interviews with festival participants (That’s you!), inquiring about their aural experiences within the burn culture. My research aims to answer questions such as “What does a Burn sound like?”; “What sounds are integral to the burn soundscape—regardless of where or when it takes place?”; “How do burn soundscapes differ from one another?”; “How are soundscapes utilized by burn participants?”; and “What can be learned about the burn subculture by honing in on its soundscapes?” Think your camp has something that contributes to Wickerman’s soundscape and should definitely should be recorded? Or, are you interested in being interviewed after Wickerman concludes? Come by Thesis Camp and add your info to the sign up sheet! I’ll be checking in many times throughout the day to find out where I ought to record… and after Wickerman, I’ll be contacting potential interviewees to set up in-person or online interviews. If you see me, come say hi! I’ll be the girl walking around with the ZoomH6, wacky binaural microphones, and usually a fuzzy direwolf hat with paws. I can’t wait to meet you!
