Classical Music and the Digital Revolution
Technology has changed the way in which we create, record and distribute music today. This panel explores the question of how the digitalization of music has impacted the way in which we listen to music. The question will be addressed from artistic, historical and technological perspectives.
Music Cognition and Big Data
Recent developments in technology allow precise analysis of music recordings of the last 100 years. The analysis of such a big body of data brings us one step closer to understanding one of the most elaborate human achievements: Music. Why do we make music, how did it evolve over time and how does musical taste work? As we consume music in the age of technology, we not only receive data in form of recordings, but also create data when we listen to music. Algorithms of online music services analyze what, when and how we listen. They predict what we seem to like, and what we don’t. This panel discusses the areas in which big data and music intersect with a focus on applications in health, life-sciences and education.
