Music and Social Interaction

What Is It?

As a DJ, I have always been quite curious about what makes the music so an integral part of the bar experience. Years and years of playing music, but I constantly question what really makes the listeners do what they do. This project takes a look into the key features affecting music and social interaction at a bar, and makes inferences as to why this might happen.

My Methods

Since this project was a part of my ethnography in HCI class, I used a classic ethnography method called participant observation. This method led to hours of observation of the bar scene and taking frequent notes throughout the evenings. Interested in what this looked like? Give the full study below a read!
