MUSIC CURRENT 2024: Future Music Panel Discussion / Reception

2 April 2024 18:00

Project Arts Centre

Each year Music Current Festival invites music audiences and the wider public 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, four composers, academics, researchers and media artists share insights into their personal practices, working methods, compositional techniques, rationale, and the strategies they use to approach compositional problems, and how technology might inform future music developments.
