Appendix A
Music mixing elements of improvisation and composition were included, as were several
concerts involving improvisation that might be considered on the borders of Improvised
Music - bands such as The Still and Transmit (which border on pop/rock), concerts at
Jazzkeller69 or Jazz an der Lohmühle (which border on more mainstream jazz), and
performances by the Wandelweiser group (bordering on Neue Musik or contemporary
classical music).
Venues hosting several nights with different names and promoters, such as Le Petit
Mignon (which happened in Quiet Cue) and Basic Electricity, Salon Bruit, AUXXX
and K77 Studio (which all took place in the Lichtblick Kino) were all collated by venue.
The database of venues also collected address information in order to generate the map
shown on Page 95.
Importing into UCINET
This data was then imported into UCINET [Borgatti et al., 2002] using ‘Piles’ (1-mode
network) and ‘Nodelist 2’ (2-mode network) import options, later adding the Musicians
database as attributes and using UCINET to generate centrality, homophily and ego
network constitution data, as well as produce the diagrams shown in Chapter 5. All
numerical results were error corrected (missing values omitted).
In order to calculate measures for the 2-mode network (not directly possible using the
2-mode functions of UCINET), the file was converted to a 1-node network containing
both venues and participants, with attributes for each venue left blank so as not to affect
the outcome. This was something of a get-around to calculate ego net composition for
the venues themselves, which works because UCINET does not include the ego itself in
its analysis.
Musicians
Biographical data was collected from musicians’ websites, Facebook, Soundcloud and
Myspace accounts, and online biographies (used for concert promotion), to create an
attribute database for SNA and to identify basic demographics of the scene.
Where possible, data was cross-checked against as many sources as possible, and
musicians’ own websites, Myspace and Soundcloud accounts were prioritised over
concert listings and Wikipedia entries (deemed less reliable).
Where no information was available fields were left blank, however, in a few cases (and
where I knew participants personally) dates of birth and arrival in Berlin were estimated.
I estimate these dates to be correct within 1 year, and these values are marked with an
asterix in the ‘Source’ column of the SPSS file.
