It was a pleasure to participate in a session on music and tech for the Incorporated Society of Musicians, part of their excellent free event ‘The Empowered Musician’. I talked about the research I’ve done into online real-time music software, drawing on discussions I had with Sam Leak, Adam Spiers, Doug Hunt, and many more, while preparing this article.
Thanks to the ISM and the other panellists for a fascinating talk. After the event is finished, it will be available on YouTube for a few more days.
On Friday I’ll be in Wrexham to take part in the DARGANFOD//DISCOVER festival that Mike Corcoran is organising. Roughly speaking, it’s a science festival, but there’s a whole lot of stuff crossing over with arts and music too — it looks pretty amazing. Lots of credit to Mike for getting it together, and for agreeing to lend his formidable conversation-leading powers to help my talk make a bit more sense.
Also taking part is the amazing Bryony Benge-Abbott who, among other things, is in charge of exhibitions at the Crick institute.
