Uproot: Travels in 21st Century Music & Digital Culture

Jace Clayton will discuss the creative upheavals of art and music production in our globalized world. How are sounds made, circulated and used, and what new social and economic possibilities emerge? In what what ways can music respond to the current political climate?

Using video and audio examples Clayton will explore some of the themes from his book: from the grassroots transformation of digital technology to the power of active listening, with plenty of time for audience discussion.
