Taking stock of Salzburg's popular music cultures of the 1950s & 1960s (2015)

Research project
Buchcover "Those were the days"

Four work contracts were awarded to provide more detailed information in the run-up to the symposium "Those were the days. Salzburgs populäre Musikkulturen in den 1950er und 1960er" (Salzburg's Popular Music Cultures in the 1950s and 1960s) to gather more detailed information on the history and development of schlager, folk music, rock & pop music, and dance schools in the city of Salzburg. Soundtracks, newspaper clippings and other materials were collected; the focus of the survey, however, was an oral history project, in the context of which numerous interviews were conducted and documented with contemporary witnesses or persons who had been granted permission.
