Music 2.0: a framework to examine next-generation digital arts environments
MetadataShow full item record
In the last decade, the Internet has served to enable the explosion of social networking and new forms of creative practice. 'Web 2.0' has come to describe an online participatory culture which continues to transform value systems, undermine notions of authority and power, while simultaneously creating new pathways for autonomous creativity and innovation. In this keynote, Paul Draper discusses these phenomena through the lens of 'Music 2.0' as a vehicle to examine digital arts practice in action: from a brief historical overview of industrial and collaborative shifts since the dot-com boom & bust, through to more recent e-learning and e-research projects which profile 21st century artistry. The presentation features a recent case study in the Fullbright-supported 'iOrpheus: Art Among Us' project (aka, the iPod Opera), held on the South Bank Parklands in August 2007. This involved the work of US Internet music pioneers William Duckworth and Nora Farrell, as well as students and staff from the Queensland Conservatorium and the Griffith Film School. A 10 minute documentary film made about the iOrpheus events will screen on state-of-the-art projection and 5.1 surround sound systems, followed by a live cross to New York to iChat with William and Nora. Film producer and director, Paul Davidson will speak about the documentary process as research, submitted as part of his MA (Honours) thesis requirements at the Griffith Film School.
