Abstract or Description

SOUND SYSTEM CULTURE originating in Jamaica is now a global popular music movement. This paper outlines an example of a practice-as-research methodology with reggae researchers and practitioners participating. Sound System Outernational 1 and 2 took place at Goldsmiths, University of London, in January and July 2016. First to declare our interests, the authors were the organizers of these events, having founded an on-going research group called Sound System Outernational, “dedicated to recognizing, stimulating and supporting sound system culture worldwide… [it] creates spaces for dance and discussion.” This makes the article a self-reflexive piece, where the events themselves are considered as an example of practice-as-research.
