Keynote | Creation that moves: what it means when humans, not studios, are at the center of music making

14:20  -  15:00
Kleiner Vortragssaal

What does it mean to be able to produce music anywhere? And what will that look like in the future? When we talk about music production, we’re constantly stumbling over place. First, we made a distinction about studios. Then, it was home studios or home recording. Through all this, the studio – that place that brings together certain tools – has still been part of people’s imagination. Where does that place meet the person? What does it mean that a phone is now literally endowed with computation powers that were the domain of expensive desktop machines […]

(Deutsch) Kreativitätsmethoden zur Entwicklung neuer Musikstücke unter Nutzung mobiler Endgeräte

14:35  -  14:55
Raum 341

There seem to be similarities between the development of new music and inventing new products. This can be explained by the high importance of creativity in both processes in particular in early phases.

For instance, very common techniques are brainstorming, design thinking as well as the morphological analysis. The use of those techniques is also conceivable in the field of music. As an example, the morphological analysis could be used to find new music combinations. Mobile apps such as mind mapping or […]
