Featured Session: The Aesthetics of Future Music

Date TBA

What will music of the future actually...sound like? What uncanny valley are we hurtling towards with AI-assisted composition, production and sound design? Composers of science fiction films regularly have had to grapple with the aesthetics of an imagined future, to varying degrees of success. In this session, we’ll track the history of imagined musical futures, explore how technology has shaped our expectations of musical aesthetics, and most importantly, we'll take our best stab at what the hell Gen Z will be dancing to in 10 years.
