Music + Data Symposium

Fri 3/8/2024 • 10AM PST

Music + Data is a one-day symposium that brings together leading scholars in music, anthropology, and sound studies (broadly conceived) into dialogue with data science to consider the impact new technologies have on music cultures in global contexts past, present, and future.

Through a series of roundtable discussions, presentations, and demos, we aim to situate “music and data” as a humanistic field of study and contribute to ongoing debates about algorithms, streaming, generative AI, ethics, and “big data” analysis. So far, the pace of technological change has outstripped our critical understanding of its impact on music cultures. Music + Data aims to close this gap by bringing humanistic approaches of music studies into dialogue with computer science and digital methods, paving the way to analyze and anticipate developments as they occur year-to-year.
