Singing the Archives: A Digital and Musical Collaboration Online

In this presentation, Dr. Williams will talk about intermedia and digital approaches to early music. Beginning in the Spring semester 2023, music history students in the School of Music and Dr. Williams collaborated with Digital Collections to create a digital audible history project centered on the library’s collections of late medieval liturgical plainchant. My talk will discuss the organization and execution of the “Singing the Archives” project, intermedia approaches to early musical culture, as well as suggestions for collaborative pedagogies between students, faculty, archivists, librarians, and developers. I would like to show how, through the processes of re-enactment and re-performance, my students became “earwitness subjects” in dialogue with historical subjects and their musical practices.
