Innovations in Audio Production "Solving the Unsolvable, Eliminating Barriers and Inspiring Creativity"
This event is associated with the IRCAM Forum Workshops - Paris 2020.
Music production and technology can often fetishize the past, nostalgic for the sounds and equipment used in the "good old days" of music. In this talk, Jonathan will explore how modern technology can help us fundamentally change how music is composed and produced, how musicians perform and connect with their audiences and each other, and what impact this might have on music itself.
