Musicnet Summary to 3 Nov 2018

Kia ora tātou


This Wednesday, I am heading to Los Angeles for a week as a guest at Ableton Loop. It’s “three days of discussions, performances, presentations, studio sessions, installations and interactive workshops aimed at exchanging ideas at the cutting edge of music, technology and creative practice. Bringing together artists, technologists, educators and other creative thinkers, Loop is a collective exploration of what it is to make music today and what it could be tomorrow.”


Past videos are available here, including a PHD analysis of the use of beats in Breakbeat and Drum and Bass and beyond. Some events are being streamed for free, and the schedule is quite good for New Zealand time, being during the daytime, as opposed to at 2am in the morning. Check it out here. I’d encourage you to have a look and maybe tell some of your students.  


Whilst I’m away, the Musicnet list will operate as normal, being looked after by Maria Lute (MLute@cognitioneducation.com)
