Vivid Ideas @ Seymour

The Future of Music: Music in the Age of Interactive Technologies

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 re-imagine what music is and discuss where its future may lie.
