The research into this website fell into several areas:
Many , many composers have their own websites which tend to be relatively simple to navigate and generally include following:
Information about the composer - they types of work they often make, details about their education and experience
The things they most want you to know about - often not every single thing they've ever written, but most of them.
sound links, embedded videos, images of performances etc
I included this separately to my thinking of other composers' websites because I think that while the actual research followed a similar process (googling, clicking through links, etc.), there are some differences.
Also, I wanted to have more than 2 things in the list above.
Also, there was one main website that I was really excited by and I think I will go a little more into detail discussing it. Perhaps.
paratext was defined by Gerard Genette and refers to the things which frame the text, such as, for books, the cover, the title, the author. In music we can think of paratext to include things such as the name of the composer, the title, programme notes, paper, the performer.
A VIDEO WILL BE HERE BUT THERE IS NOT A VIDEO HERE YET
Paratext is very interesting and I could talk about it for a very long time
intertext. And we can talk about Umberto Eco a bit here, but probably not only Umberto Eco
