Aesthetics of Computer Music: Changes in the Nature and Reception of Music

Aesthetics of Computer Music: Changes in the Nature and Reception of Music

School of Music, Lecture Theatre 1

This workshop explores the impact that the latest developments in computer music have on how we receive and research music. The discussion will bring together many different perspectives – music research, psychology of music, philosophy, composition, performance – with the aims of collating the research that is being carried out on the topic and of considering how the various results intersect with each other.
