New Musical Experiences: an exellent paper by Dan Hill

My BBC colleague Jem Stone (Social Media blog, Music blog[dormant]) tipped me off about an excellent paper written by Dan Hill (another BBC colleague, Dan’s the Head Of Interactive Technology for BBC Music Interactive).

Dan’s paper – New Musical Experiences – is an iteration of a lecture he gave at the The Future of Music conference at the Sibelius Academy, Helsinki.

I would describe it as an introduction and then exploration of the intersection between the music industry (and it’s listeners) and new media (along with social media).

There are some spectacular visuals that accompany the narrative too.

Dan writes:

“I’ve written more or less what I spoke about, although it’s developed into more of a ‘paper’ than was originally intended and is now more cityofsound than BBC. The audience was music educators, music technologists, musicians, researchers and cultural policy makers. This talk, like many I give, was concerned with describing an emerging terrain for the largely unfamiliar, and as such could work as a primer for aspects of this area in general – yet I also tried to make some points to move discussion in general along.”

It’s a ‘depthy’ (read:long) paper, but even for seasoned pros in this field there are still many thought provoking take away messages here.

Definitely worth printing out for journey home this evening…
