Future Musics

Music is on the brink of transformation. Music has more or less been structured around the same pillars— melody, harmony, and rhythm as it's traditionally conceived— for at least eight centuries, since the Notre Dame school of Léonin and Perotin first and simultaneously aligned polyphony, rhythmic modes, and near-modern notation under what was later dubbed their ars antiqua. These pillars will soon be equalled or overtaken by a host of other categories and relationships imagined by experimental musicians of recent centuries and made possible and popularly instinctual by the digital manipulation of sound. This working group is dedicated to investigating and imagining these future musics.
