I have just been a speaker at New Music Biennial at the Southbank Centre in London as part of two seminars for sound and music.
Some of the most innovative digital producers, musicians, programmers and curators join together for a weekend of talks and discussions to discuss how composers working today can harness new opportunities presented by digital technology.
Part of the New Music Biennial 2014
These two symposiums will look at emerging trends in digital media focussed on two themes of new platforms and audiences online. How can new developments in technology best be used to the advantage of composers? What works, what doesn’t? Are there any ethical implications, and what are they? In what direction are we headed? And what happens if we get left behind?
Sunday 6th July, 10am – 11.20am
