Wallace, R. (2016) Documenting musically influenced subcultures. Invited Presentation presented to: Popular Music Studies: Methodological Conundrums of Researching Subcultures, Birmingham City University, 12 October 2016.

Item Type: Conference or Workshop Item (Invited Presentation)
Abstract: In my presentation I will outline some of the PhD research I have generated as a documentary practitioner as my interest focuses on various subcultures and the musical influences which underpin their philosophies. I will outline and explore some of the key issues involved in DIY or ‘amateur’ approaches to documentary work in comparison to some of the ‘professional’ work I have undertaken for the BBC and Channel Four Television. In my recent research work I have been exploring the immediacy of internet streaming and the historiographies of subcultures with a particular emphasis on the Anarcho-punk scene, however I am currently working on a project with punk legends the Buzzcocks which is due for release 2017 as part of the forty year celebration of Punk in the UK. Roy Wallace is a senior Lecturer in Media Production at the University of Northampton with a background as musician, art practitioner and tour manager for various artists.
