Wednesday, 13 February, 2019 - 12:30 to 14:00

This talk will report on a fifteen-year project to research the representation of Indonesian regional music and theater on VCD (video compact discs, until recently the main commercial medium for music in Indonesia). Representation is a key term here. There are countless varieties of local music in the regions (daerah) of Indonesia, but only a small portion of them appear on VCD.
