    Databases, Information Sources, Lists

    This entertaining and informative site attempts to categorise, index and contextualise tropes - storytelling devices or conventions - as they appear in television programmes, films, games, music, literature, and other media. There are four main indexes: Genre Tropes, Media Tropes, Narrative Tropes and Topical Tropes. Each of these main headings is further subdivided so that under the Narrative Trope heading, for example, one can explore Characters, Conflict, Motifs Settings etc., down to a microscopic level of detail. The site began in 2004, primarily focusing on the television series ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’. Since then it has vastly expanded its scope to cover most types of media. Users can explore by series or trope. Each series entry features a list of tropes associated with that series, whereas users exploring by trope (British Teeth, for example) will find a list of that trope’s appearance in television, film, literature etc. Although the approach is often humorous the site represents an invaluable resource for anyone interested in exploring or analysing the building blocks of storytelling and narrative construction, in any medium, but particularly television.

    Site dedicated to electronic musician and composer Daphne Oram. Oram, who co-founded the BBC’s Radiophonic Workshop, devoted her career, after she left the BBC in 1959, to the development of her own Oramics system, a pioneering form of sound sythesis based on the use of 35 mm film strips which are drawn or written on by the musician and generate sounds when passed over photo-electric cells. This site features biographical details along with information about how to access the Daphne Oram collection which is held in Goldsmith’s University’s special collections and includes papers relating to Oram’s work at the BBC, personal documents, papers relating to the Oramics system, photographs, musical scores, computer code and sound recordings. A small but fascinating selection of sound clips features Oram introducing some of her own pieces including the soundtrack to the Geoffrey Jones film ‘Snow’ which was made for British Transport Films in 1963.
