The creative industries have experienced huge changes over the past two decades. New technologies have revolutionised the means of production and distribution of all popular creative activities, in music, in film, in TV and print. The old, vertical hierarchies, where the creation of content was managed centrally and distributed through defined networks have been disrupted, and new and flatter systems of creation and distribution have to some extent replaced them. This symposium draws together artists and academics across various disciplines to discuss the effects new technology and techniques of media dissemination have impacted on practice.
Social media, games and film along with two panels specifically on the music business (the relation between the academy and the business and ‘Music Business Futures’) will be in focus for the upcoming symposium on Technology and Transformations being hosted by Bucks New University – High Wycombe Campus on 19 October.
The day runs from 9.30am (registration – first panel at 10am) – 5.30pm: full programme and abstracts of papers and performances available at our website:
