Sounding Out: Digital

Hugs Bison streaming
Both events streamed by digital innovators and musicians Hugs Bison
Saturday 5th - Sunday 6th July 2014
Southbank Centre
Produced by: 
Sound and Music // Southbank Centre

Some of the most innovative digital producers, musicians, programmers and curators join together for a weekend of talks and discussions to discuss how composers working today can harness new opportunities presented by digital technology.

Part of the New Music Biennial 2014

These two symposiums will look at emerging trends in digital media focussed on two themes of new platforms and audiences online. How can new developments in technology best be used to the advantage of composers? What works, what doesn't? Are there any ethical implications, and what are they? In what direction are we headed? And what happens if we get left behind?

Saturday 5th July, 10.30am - 11.50am
