Music Ex Machina: Methods and methodologies for technology-centred practice-based research in contemporary music

This Symposium, co-hosted by Cyborg Soloists and Technology in Musical Performance (TiMP), will explore and reflect upon the new methods and methodologies afforded by cutting edge technologies in creative musical practice. Papers consider the opportunities and challenges recent technological developments pose for contemporary music making as well as how these approaches might be conceptualised within practice-based research methodologies, reassessing notions of agency, authorship and ethics within technology-informed practice and the sphere of the post- or transhuman. 

The Keynote speaker is Dr Scott McLaughlin (University of Leeds) and the symposium will conclude with a performance of his Entangled Trio by Dr Zubin Kanga and Dr Mira Benjamin.
