Andrew Flory, assistant professor of music, delivered a lecture entitled "Locating the Motown Sound" as part of the Musicology and Ethnomusicology Division Colloquia series in the School of Music at the University of Maryland, College Park. Flory’s talk looked to show how consistent business and creative structures helped to foster a discernable style in Motown's most popular music during the mid-1960s. The discussion continued with an analysis of the ways in which a single production team worked to create distinct sonic and textual identities for two very different groups, the Supremes and the Four Tops.
