Help with the Contra Pulse project!
Contra pianist Julie Vallimont is interviewing contra musicians across the country to "take the pulse" of contra music today. Some topics she's asking about include what music is being played today and why, how things have changed, and what the future might hold. She is recording both audio and video for these interviews, and they will be posted on a website linked to the CDSS website.
How you can be involved:
Julie needs volunteers to transcribe the audio so that written transcripts of the conversations can be posted online and saved in the CDSS archives. It's a fun project! Each interview is 1-2 hours long. Julie will send you an MP3 audio file and give you some technical guidance and helpful tips. This work can be done on your own time and you don’t need any prior transcribing experience to help.
