Comments on Twitter

I am doing research at the British Library National Sound Archive on early recordings of Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire. As I listen to the recordings I note things and this might be of interesting to some of you. You can follow me live and comment back on twitter by clicking on the following link: Follow Avior Byron on Twitter. I do not know of any scholar who did this before me (although I would not be surprised if there are such people).

Why am I doing it?

Good question. I am not sure myself. Here are some possible reasons:

1. It is a place I can write notes and come back to them in the near future.

2. If someone that is following me will see the notes and have something to say, he or she can do it at real time. This might be very helpful for me.

3. Like blogging in general. Micro-blogging on twitter might attract the attention of relevant people who have common interests. This often helps research.

4. Making my comments public might be of interest to various people: young scholars who want to follow the way I do reaserch, and other scholars who are interested in my topic of research.

5. Perhaps the most important thing is that I feel that Twitter helps me concentrate. I feel that when I write notes that are open to the public, I do it differently than when I write them on a piece of paper. This helps me think and focus.

And it works!

Just noticed that Sound Archive at the British Library (Richard Ranft): three million recordings of music, voices, environments from around the world, wrote the following at their twitter: WhiteAvior Byron’s live tweets his research at British Library Sound Archive on early Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire recordings @avior

    Hi Byron, simple really, I run the Sound Archive’s Twitter account. My Tweetdeck application picked up one of your tweets that contained the phrase ‘Sound Archive’. Keep up the good work, don’t let me distract you! Richard Ranft
