Full Site Disclosure

This site is a course project for EDIT 6150 at The University of Georgia. Project requirements are that we have at least 10 pages in our site and include lots of pictures. We are also encouraged to pick a topic that is of personal interest to us.

Why I chose this topic.

Therefore, I have chosen "The History of Electronic Music." Like most of us, I love music. Growing up, I had a fascination with audio equipment, and have always followed technological trends in audio. In the early 1990s, I created a sound studio based on MIDI and digital audio technology. I worked with many local artists in Athens, most notably with UGA Professor James Herbert and local band R.E.M. Also, I can't forget my work with Neutral Milk Hotel and The Elephant Six Collective. Since those days, I kept a hobby of djing, working in local night clubs in Athens and Georgia.

The Source of Content

As a past studio owner, ex-dj, and fan of electronic music, the opportunity to create a site about Electronic Music is very exciting. There is so much I don't know about Electronic Music; when I can, I add personal commentary to the content, but for the large part this site relies almost entirely upon articles in Wikipedia. Reference materials in Wikipedia not only provide most of the content, but helped me develop the outline of the site itself. I've made a concentrated effort to directly link to the areas in Wikipedia that I use.

Ulimately, this is a learning project for me. I don't make any claims to be an authority on the subject, and have heavily relied on Wikipedia for the site content. I hope the design of the site is appealing to users and lends itself to easy exploration of this huge topic.
