A Conversation with Mark Katz
Apropos of Music and Technology: A Very Short Introduction
On 19 October 2022, at 5pm, in the Lecture Hall B1 at NOVA-FCSH (Campus Avenida de Berna), the Critical Theory and Communication Research Group of the CESEMwill host a conversation with Prof. Mark Katz about his most recent book, Music and Technology: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press, 2022). In this study, in the wake of Capturing Sound: How Technology Changed Music (University of California Press, 2010), the author discusses music as technology, challenging essentialist or purist perspectives on the musical phenomenon, while considering examples from to most varied genres (from European classical music to hip hop), regions (including Asia, Africa and South America) and times (from the prehistoric era to today).
