I am hosting a short series of FREE weekly lunchtime public lectures on the topic of Music in the Digital Age. Guests from the music industries will discuss a range of topics concerning digital music, enterprise and innovation. The first symposium is happening tomorrow at Parkside Lecture Theatre, BCU City Centre Campus.
Part 1: How Music Works in the Digital Age
Thurs, Nov 7th at Noon
Steve Lawson (New Music Strategies), Laura Kidd (She Makes War) and Rich Huxley (Hope and Social) discuss the ways in which the digital environment impacts upon and influences the composition, production, promotion, distribution and consumption of music. They will discuss the often hidden economic, cultural and social implications of those changes, and make sense of the prevailing rhetoric around the music industries. The speakers will not only look at the big picture view, but also speak from their own experience as music industry workers and musicians. The symposium will last an hour, but the guests will stay for discussions and informal Q&A with the audience.
The event is free, but places are limited and registration is required:
Look forward to seeing you there tomorrow.
