Digital Music Technology Can Aid in Bringing Music Back as a Part of Life

1998b

In Bernd Enders and Nies Knolle, eds. KlangArt - Kongreß 1995. Osnabrück: Universitätsverlag Rasch: 175-183

This provocative article consists essentially of a number of futuristic ideas presented at a conference that had as its task to look forward as we approach the millennium. It questions the current state of affairs where a huge market-based popular sector is thriving, a subsidy-based classical music sector is turning into a museum culture and various forms of contemporary music are extremely marginalised. The ideas do not appear as a solution, but do suggest some post-digital views of how things might evolve. This article has been influenced by and includes ideas from Landy 1996, “Quality and Quantity (if we’re lucky) or Marcuse’s problem ain’t been solved yet”.
