‘Music, Digitisation, Mediation: Towards Interdisciplinary Music Studies’ (MusDig) was a five-year research programme engaged in mapping and analysing the far-reaching changes to music and musical practices afforded by digitisation and digital media. Launched in 2010 and based in the Faculty of Music, University of Oxford, the empirical element of the programme entailed a first phase of six ethnographic studies of about one year’s duration, most of them multi-sited, carried out in the developing and the developed world by the principal investigator, Professor Georgina Born, and five research associates: Dr. Aditi Deo, Dr. Andrew Eisenberg, Dr. Patrick Valiquet, Dr. Geoff Baker (Royal Holloway, University of London) and Dr. Alexandrine Boudreault-Fournier (University of Victoria, Canada). MusDig was funded by the European Research Council’s Advanced Grants scheme. In its second phase, the programme had several additional post docs and then graduate students affiliated with it who extended its work through research on related topics: Dr. Kyle Devine (now at Oslo University) Dr. Blake Durham (Tulane University), Dr. Chris Haworth (University of Birmingham), Joe Snape (NYU) and Dr. Christabel Stirling (Oxford).
