Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Welcome to the team: Richard Kriehn

Richard Kriehn
I met last week with Richard Kriehn, program coordinator for the School of Music at Washington State University, and he has agreed to join our team and work with us on researching the use of music in mobile apps. As part of that collaboration, Richard will be creating music for the Fort Vancouver Mobile app, and related apps, such as the Grand Emporium of the West tablet app (more on that coming soon). He already has found some fun and interesting French music from the 19th century that he will be recording, and he next will be looking for Scottish music from the period, and the real stretch for the era: music from the Orkney Islands, which was a special request from Fort Vancouver liaison Greg Shine. Our plan is to put the music into the apps and test the various responses users have to it, in different places, in different scenarios, to try to get a sense of how music can play an important role in place-based media. Will post updates when I can, but for now, here is Richard's bio:

"Richard Kriehn is the Program Coordinator for the School of Music and also teaches violin, guitar class, Survey of Music Literature and Introduction to Music Technology. He also holds the position of principle second violin for the Washington/Idaho Symphony. Mr. Kriehn earned his BM from Boise State University and his MA in Music from Washington State University. Mr. Kriehn has performed with the Boise Philharmonic, Arkansas Symphony, Nashville Chamber Orchestra and the Alabama Symphony. He also served as concertmaster and a founding member of Boise Baroque Chamber Orchestra (Boise, Idaho). Before moving to the Pacific Northwest, he and his family lived just outside of Nashville, Tennessee. While in Tennessee, he toured with Travis Tritt, Aaron Tippin and Michael Peterson, was a member of the Nashville Mandolin Ensemble and was a member of the bluegrass group “1946.” When Richard wasn’t traveling, he transcribed mandolin books for Mel Bay Publications (four to date) and performed studio work. During his five years in Nashville, he appeared at many diverse venues: Country Gold Festival, Kumamoto, Japan; The Rosie O’Donnell Show (ABC); The Grand Ole’ Opry (TNN); Walker, Texas Ranger (CBS); Farm Aid 2000 (TNN). One of his favorite musical memories, however, happened right here in the Palouse. In October of 2006, he was asked to be a guest performer on “A Prairie Home Companion” when the show came through Pullman and broadcast a live radio show from Beasley Coliseum."
