I just got an acceptance email to present at the IASPM (International Association for the Study of Popular Music) conference in May! Along with four other fellow Indiana University ethnomusicology folks, I submitted a proposal for a roundtable discussion about genre in popular music. And I am the moderator...my nerves are being racked here! So...genre and electronic music in Detroit...should be pretty cool! For our roundtable, we'll have as topics of discussion, music store guitar lessons, music and HIV/AIDS in Trinidad, recording studio dynamics, and indie rock music, and, well yes, you know, Detroit electronic music!
