Summary
This journalism master's project includes a professional work component and a research component. The professional work component consists of the author's photographs of the techno subculture in St. Louis, Missouri. Three photo stories focus "on three main characters of the subculture: the electronic music fan, the DJ or musician, and the promoter." (page 11) Includes field notes and examples of work. The purpose of the research component "was to examine and understand the ways in which people perceive the techno subculture through advertisements that may or may not commodify that subculture." (page 82) The definition of commodification used for this research is "the act of turning something into, or treating something as a (mere) commodity; commercialization of an activity, etc., that is not by nature commercial." (page 77) "The main question that framed this research is, how do audiences receive advertisements that commodify the techno subculture? And, what are their perceptions of the techno subculture after seeing these advertisements?" (page 83) This study was done in two parts. First, a textual analysis was conducted of "ten different Internet advertisements that use techno music or visual elements of the techno subculture." (page 83) Secondly, interviews were conducted with five people active in the techno subculture and five people knowing little or nothing about the subculture, "to examine their perceptions of the techno subculture based on these advertisements." (page 85) Includes a literature review, interview transcripts and a CD-ROM of the photo story of electronic music events promoter Amin Mohabbat
