Every bit of it
Conventionally, people would associate music with subjectivity, expressivity and emotions – properties which sharply contrast with the image of rigid objectivity and soulless number-crunching that we typically attribute to digital technology. But does this mean that these worlds are total opposites?
This is a personal account of a fascination for music, our current digital society, and the interfaces between both. You will get a chance at seeing and hearing the versatility of music. There will be talk about things big and small in the digital realm. But above all, this story is meant to open your eyes to the many hidden digital gems that are nowadays right in front of us, but easily overlooked.
