During his time here as a Kluge Fellow in Digital Studies and Fulbright Tech Impact scholar, Patrick Egan’s project, Connections in Sound has been focused on experimental ways to re-combine archived audio material in the digital age. Patrick will be in conversation with staff from the American Folklife Center about the audio collections that contain Irish traditional music. He will also present some digital visualizations and digital infrastructures that he is using for linking music recordings, and finish with a performance of Irish traditional music with local DC musicians.
