Ethnomusicologist, Jaap Kunst
Last night I finished transcribing my final interview! I'm elated, although nowhere near done. I've still got the whole thing to write, you know! I've been devoting so much time to transcribing, I almost feel like I'm not sure what do to now, sitting down at my desk. I know what to do, and I'll dig into it as soon as I finish this little update. I have a bit more thematic coding of my blog writing (see this post) and of my beautiful interview transcripts. That should be pretty quick and simple. Additionally, I have yet to share most of the audio files of the interviews with the folks I interviewed. Not for stinginess, just because there's a bunch of stuff to do, and I haven't gotten to it yet. So that's what I'll be sifting through over the next week or so.
I've got 80+ hours of audio recordings from interviews and 25 hours of video from various events in Detroit. I often get asked who I've interviewed, so here's a list. It's not going to grow much over the next while, but after I get my dissertation completed, there will definitely be more interviewing in preparation for the book.
AUX88 - Keith Tucker and Tommy Hamilton
John Bileebob Williams
Bill Stacey (DJ Seoul)
Brendan M. Gillen
All right, I'll be back in a minute...
