This panel will illustrate and compare two innovative approaches to multimedia-driven study at Columbia. In a Music Humanities course, undergraduates are analyzing musical passages with unprecedented specificity, through the use of visualization software. In the Oral History Masters of Arts program, deep monitoring of audio tracks is driving new insight into the interview process and its mix of subjectivities. In each case students are producing an ‘overlay’ of media in order to better understand source material, and sharing insights in Columbia’s Mediathread analysis platform.
