Harkive is an annual online research project that gathers stories about How, Where and Why people listen to music across a single day. The project this year takes place on Tuesday 25th July – We’d love to hear your story.
The project is interested in how music plays its part in your day on 25th July. We’re interested in the technologies, formats and services you use, the places you find yourselves in and how music accompanies you as you move through your day, and – of course – how music makes you feel.
Joining in with the project is easy. You can do so simply by adding the #harkive hashtag to your music-related posts on Twitter, Instagram and Tumblr. Alternatively, if you want to write something a little longer, you can email it to us, or send it via this online form. Stories are also accepted as posts on the Harkive Facebook wall.
You can send as many entries as you like across the day, and you can write as much or as little as you like. Feel free to include photos, links and other digital media. There is more detailed information on how to tell your story here.
Harkive is part of a PhD research project. You can read more about the background of that here, and find more detailed information about the research ethics of this work here. To further aid the research process, there is also an online survey. It takes around 5-10 minutes to complete, and you can do this before or after 25th July. If you do not wish to complete the survey, don’t worry: you can still contribute your story on 25th July.
We’re looking forward to once again hearing your stories. Please do consider joining in, and please do tell your friends, share this post, and generally spread the word.
