In Pursuit of the Innovative and the Accessible: Some of the driving forces behind my music and my research
This talk will present the motivations related to both my work as a musician and as a scholar within the world of sonic creativity. Instead of focusing on technology and technique, it will introduce some of my ideas all of which are intended to move music forward. Issues will include: the (in)accessibility of new music; musical communication, dramaturgy and aesthetics; new musical communities; and even humour. Looking forward, John Richards and my new book (nearing completion), On the Music of Sounds and the Music of Things will be discussed. In it I investigate sam pling culture and John DIY or hacking culture. Together we look at what we believe are the driving forces of the innovative 21st century sonic musician.
