W: Hello, John.
M: Hi, Betty.
W: John.Could you do me a favor?
M: Sure, what is it?
W: I am doing a research project for my sociology course. It is about music. Could I ask you some questions about your music experiences and your music preferences?
M: Fine. No problem.
W: Thanks a lot. Um, the interview is going to be totally anonymous, your name is not going to be mentioned anywhere, and if you don't want to answer any question, you don't have to. Just tell me “do not want to answer" and we will proceed to the next one and also you can withdraw at any point of the interview if you feel uncomfortable. So, first of all, I would like to thank you for accepting to participate in this interview and I would like to ask you if it is OK with you to use the recorder?
M: Sure, it is fine.
W:OK. How did you like last night's event?
M: I was really fascinated. I thought the same event that was held last year was better, simply because it was newer, but I really enjoyed the music, I really enjoyed the energy. I thought it was a lot of fun actually.
W:Could you tell me more about the event?
M: Sure. It was a Greek music night, Greek traditional music, organized by a band coming from London, called the SOAS Rebetiko Band. And yeah, they came with a nine piece band and played some music.
男: 当然。这是一个希腊音乐之夜，希腊传统音乐，由一个来自伦敦的乐队组织，叫做SOAS Rebetiko乐队。是的，他们带来了一个九人乐队，并演奏了一些音乐。
W: How often do you go to this type of events?
M: This type of events? Very rarely, about twice a year. Because it's very hard to find places where you can go with this kind of music.
W:Then how do you choose the events that you attend with this type of music?
M: Well, pretty -much they are the only ones that take place. Or I go to the ones which have popular stars in them.
W:What do you mean by popular stars?
M: I mean, they are the people I should listen to in this kind of musical field, sort of the pioneers of the music.
W: Alright so, if I understood correctly, you enjoy the traditional types of music?
M: Well primarily, the form of music I enjoy the most is jazz. After jazz I probably enjoy Rebetiko and Serbian folk music and pop music ranks next.
W: Alright, great. So basically we have finished with the questions. Would you like to receive a copy of the interview transcript?
M: Not particularly. No.
W: OK, thank you very much for your cooperation and your time. You have been very helpful. Then thank you very much for contributing to my research.
