The Listening Experience Database (LED) project is an AHRC-funded collaboration between the Open University and the Royal College of Music. Its main purpose is to design and develop a database which will bring together a mass of data about people’s experiences of listening to music of all kinds, in any historical period and any culture.The database is freely searchable by the general public and uses crowdsourcing as one of the ways in which data is collected.

This seminar gives an overview of the project, focusing in particular on the architecture and development of the database, and some of the challenges of developing an effective crowdsourcing strategy.
