Global online audiences via Facebook and Soundcloud

As well as working closely together with (local) electronic music enthusiasts and original participants, the project team wanted to engage a global audience of electronic music enthusiasts. To this end the team set up a Facebook page and later organised an online remix competition. Both of these activities were seen as being of an experimental nature. Their main goal was not to attract large amounts of traffic, but better to understand if it was possible to engage people with the Museum’s work and collections through the use of social media and to discover how online audiences responded to various types of content.
