Recently, Asian culture and popular music have experienced a surge of global attention. Western culture developed a craze for K-pop and Japanese anime. The virtual J-pop star Hatsune Miku, K-pop idol group SHINee, and other Asian artists have toured the United States and gained a large fan base. YouTube and other social media venues now provide Americans with unprecedented access to music from outside their country. This public musicology project seeks to provide an accessible recourse for students and researchers addressing this globalization of Asian popular music. Using a podcast format, the project will communicate aspects and effects of globalization, drawing on music scholarship and sound recording collections discoverable in BGSU’s Music Library and Bill Schurk Sound Archives.
