THE FUTURE OF MUSIC in the Digital World
10 May 2010
‘THE FUTURE OF MUSIC in the Digital World’ to be explored at international conference in Dublin Castle. Arts Minister Mary Hanafin to open Contemporary Music Centre’s conference for the music industry on Friday, 11 June 2010.
With access to music now just a click away for most of us, very few of the tried and tested ways of accessing music remain unchanged. Can we, or should we, attempt to predict the future? Have we even begun to deal with the present yet? This major conference brings together high-level international speakers to explore and debate issues around the meaning of digital culture: how it impacts on the creator and the performer; and the implications for copyright in a world which has come to expect music to be free.
Who should attend? Creative artists and organisations engaged in any area of composition, performance, publishing or distribution across all forms of music in Ireland are invited to join the debate in the Coach House, Dublin Castle, on 11 June.
Registration (including buffet lunch, refreshments and wine reception) is €50 (concessions €35). Early bird discount of 10% if you book and pay by close of business on 7 May. A limited number of bursaries are available.
