DH Soundtrack #musicliquidarchitecture

Kawoom. The following list of songs constitutes our very own, bleeding-edge Digital Humanities soundtrack, music we listen to before, after and, much to our own surprise, while conducting our research. All annual editions are rolling releases receiving regular updates (see Update History below). Links are only provided if we came across an official audio or video. Working hypothesis: music = liquid architecture, as stated on page 313 in this 1853 book.
