Each year at Music Current Festival music audiences and the wider public are invited to engage in debates and discussions concerning how music making is affected by technology, social changes and the political environment.
In the current New Media and post-digital environment composers are increasingly using new techniques and strategies to organise sound. Here, six composers and musicians share insights into their personal working methods, compositional techniques, rationale, and the strategies they use to approach compositional problems.
This event is hosted in collaboration with the Contemporary Music Centre, Ireland. The discussion will be moderated by CMC Director, Evonne Ferguson.
The discussion is open and accessible to public participation, and contributions are welcome from the audience. Attendance is free and all are welcome, but booking is advised. Tickets via Project Arts Centre.
Music Current is produced in collaboration with the Contemporary Music Centre and supported by the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon, and Art Mentor Foundation Lucerne.
