POP UP: conversations about the Present of music with Machete, Propaganda, Radio Raheem, Tlon
What influence technology is having on the way music is created and enjoyed?
Giorgio Valletta (Radio Raheem) + Yas (Machete) + Andrea Corona (Propaganda)
Moderator: Andrea Colamedici
Music has always been a technological product capable of expressing what is most profound in the human soul. With the progress of new technologies, the dissemination of musical culture no longer passes only through the listening experience. Video content providers, social media and gaming sound enhancements enrich our music experiences that we may not even notice. Is the future of music in hybridization with other experiences and forms of listening? Is the listening experience we are used to, ie disco and concert, destined to become one of the other experiences of contact with music? Are the new listening experiences available changing the way music is created and composed as well as the way we discover and listen to it?
