This year’s Most Wanted: Music and the joint research project MusCoDA – Musical Communities in the (Post)Digital Age are hosting a barcamp on the present and future of songwriting:
Digital creator tools, machine learning and AI as well as the new dimensions of digital-live are fundamentally changing the process of music creation and production. On the one hand, the creative process is increasingly distributed between humans and non-humans, on the other hand, more and more competencies are uniting in the person of the artist. Alongside enthusiasm for innovation, skepticism and resistance are also apparent. This barcamp offers an exchange about current and future technologies and practices of songwriting. How are songs created today? What influence does technological change have on the concept of the song? What are the new possibilities of music composition in times of posthumanism and postdigitality?
Jovanka von Wilsdorf, Katrin Hahner aka KENICHI & THE SUN and VALENTIN are invited to give an impulse talk about their practices, experiences and visions on songwriting and then host an open discussion about the participants’ own digital songwriting practices, experiences and visions.
The Barcamp is a cooperation between Most Wanted:Music and the joint research project MusCoDA – Musical Communities in the (Post)Digital Age (University of Erfurt & University of Applied Sciences Clara Hoffbauer Potsdam, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research).
