Mediatized Music

Humboldt-Universität hosts international conference of the Study Group “Music and Media”

Music plays an important role in media, both in old and certainly in new media: commercials, games, films, ring tones and the like. The other way around, media play an increasing role in music. They have changed the compositional process and characteristics of style; media severely influences performances, composing techniques as well as means of recording and visualizing music.
