I am a first-year Master’s student in Arts Administration at the University of Oregon. This site is my Transmedia Field Guide for my final project for the class Art In Society. For this project, I looked at six music venues in Eugene, Oregon. I framed attributes of the venues in the larger context of an audience member’s live music experience and a venue’s potential contribution to this experience. I also conducted an informal survey about what made respondents’ favorite concerts so special. Additionally, I looked at models that increase or subvert traditional modes of participation at a live concert. Finally, I drew some conclusions concerning how a venue might increase or retain their audience base by bearing some of these considerations in mind.
Thank you for visiting.

This has some great information about venues in Eugene, OR. and how venues impact the music-lovers’ experiences.
