(2005-06-01) PANEL 1

Hotel Opus


Music, like any other art form, does not emerge isolated from a vacuum. Rather, it builds through a series of intertwined and often complex relationships, many of which are defined by a structure of influence. But the evolution of technology has made it possible, even commonplace, for creativity to exist as a collage of unlikely sources strung together with the deliberate intent of assembling a statement on the nature of culture itself. Is it evolution or theft? It all depends who you ask. In music, it all depends on who owns the original recordings. This panel will bring together of group of technology-based artists and affiliates who are all coming at this dilemma from different angles. The discussion will contemplate the justifications for their work, the possibilities afforded by the new Creative Commons initiative, as well as the inherent difficulties of sidestepping the copyright-driven industry that doesn’t want them to make music as they see it.
