For your information Opera by You members and especially composers, find below announcement about doctoral dissertation student, who is observing our community.
Dear members of the Opera by You community,
It has been really interesting to observe the creation process of an opera, and it looks to me that you’re involved with something genuinely new and exciting! I am a doctoral student at Sibelius Academy in Finland. The central themes of my in-progress PhD dissertation have to do with various kinds of music-related communities, specifically those enabled by digital and/or virtual technologies, as well as the challenges and opportunities that participation in such local and global communities might bring forth in terms of individual and communal musical identities (more about my research: http://muka.siba.fi/en/studies/doctoral_studies/heidi_partti/). Opera by You is one of the cases through which I hope to examine these questions.
Some of you may get a message from me during the coming weeks, asking some questions regarding your participation in Opera by You. I would very much appreciate your answers. I am particularly interested in your personal experiences in being part of this kind of collaborative composing project. Naturally, participation in the study is voluntary, and you will be free to withdraw at any time. If you choose to participate by answering my questions, your confidentiality will be protected as well as possible at all stages of conducting and reporting the study.
I wish you all a great journey with this and all other creative projects you might be involved with!
