Get inside the music

Paterson, Justin ORCID: and Toulson, Rob (2017) Get inside the music. [Show/Exhibition]


Contemporary commercial music is generally created as discrete blocks and layers of digital audio, which can either be recorded or synthesized. Music components are also regularly manipulated in a digital environment to create a larger than life illusion of a band or artist performance. The creation and production of music is therefore a mysterious artistic practice, enabled by digital technologies, but the listener or consumer can have no detailed understanding of this practice from purely experiencing the final music artifact. To build a bridge into the world of music creation, an AHRC funded project, titled Transforming Digital Music, has been conducted to enable listeners to explore the finished music product through a unique interactive app, which empowers the listener to ‘get inside the music’. During the exhibition, participants will be invited to explore the musical building blocks of Daisy and The Dark’s ground-breaking Red Planet EP, using an interactive display connected to multiple headphone outlets. The artist will also give a number of live ‘silent’ performances that can only be experienced audibly through Bluetooth headphones, enabling participants to experience a unique and immersive musical experience.
