Sound Archive

Visited North West Sound Archive in Clitheroe. There are some entries on Burnley at the archive which were interesting to listen to. Some of the memories may prove useful as contributions to my project data, though it is important to note that, unlike the participants, these contributors will be unable to help develop the digital representation. While at the Sound Archive I discussed my plans with the two guys there who both had very helpful advice on conducting the interviews. After speaking with them I realised that I had an unrealistic idea of how the interviews would work. For some reason I thought that I would just be able to ask the participant some sort of starter question and then they would share all of their interesting and rich subjective experiences. This was obviously ridiculous, so I have taken the advice I received and have paid more attention to my prompting questions and to the opening questions.
