The Future of Music:

Music In the Age of Interactive Technologies

26 May

We can foresee a world in which the format of the record/tape/CD is consigned to a moment in history, not because we don’t need physical media any more, but because in the digital age everything is interactive, evolving, personalisable — and not least music. This debate brings together practitioners and thinkers from different worlds of music and digital design to reimagine what music is and discuss where its future may lie.

The Future of Music is the first event of Vivid @ Seymour, featuring performances by Australian new music artists and includes an interactive exhibition, exploring the intersection of music and games.

Speakers:
Dr Oliver Bown, curator Musify and Gamify
Stephen Ferris, Music Manager, VIVID Sydney
Dr Lian Loke, senior lecturer Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning
Dr Damien Ricketson, Composer and lecturer in Contemporary Music, Sydney Conservatorium

Join us after the panel for a viewing of Musify+Gamify exhibition throughout the foyer of the Seymour Centre (7.30 to 8.30pm). The exhibition includes an international series of musifications and gamifications, videogames, generative music and contemporary immersive and interactive experiences, including works by Lucas Abela, David Kanaga, Michaela Davies and The Futile Research Lab.
