How online social networks are redefining knowledge, power, 21st century music-making and higher education
MetadataShow full item record
In the course of the last decade or so, the Internet has served to enable the global practice of social networking. From MySpace to YouTube and Google, the term 'web 2.0' is now used to describe a participatory culture which is transforming value systems, undermining notions of authority and power, and enabling new pathways for autonomous creativity and innovation in music-making. This paper examines these phenomena and outlines an agenda which aims to support and develop what might be considered as 'Music 2.0', that is, independent musical craft set in authentic contexts which continue to redefine 21st century artistry and its training.
