Electronic Dance Music Culture’s Gradual Shift from Tangibility to Intangibility

2. (Names of all participants):

Dr. Margaret C. Stewart, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Communication Studies

3. (A description or abstract of the material to be presented):

Amid the prior quarter-century, Electronic Dance Music Culture (EDMC) has used various modes of digital communication to serve as an impetus to distribute information to its members and affiliates. This project will derive an ethnomusicological inquiry as to what extent EDMC has shifted from more of a tangible one to an intangible one. Tangible EDMC utilizes cardstock flyers to promote electronic music events and brick-and-mortar stores to sell physical copies of pre-recorded music, which has turned into a subculture. Over twenty-five years, being a very early adapter of digital mediums, this evolved, now largely intangible culture uses numerous applications, the world-wide web, and other platforms to live stream video, promote and distribute pre-recorded music, and feature films. The project will begin to determine if casual shifting in information dissemination is deteriorating communal spirit within EDMC, or if intangible communication is a positive catalyst to convert more fans, thereby influencing more people.
