About the Congress
With the social use of technology, interconnectivity and instantaneity, we face the challenge of providing musicians with the necessary concepts and mind-sets to adapt the development of their professional skills to the current paradigm and to understand and creatively deal with the changes within their respective fields. Educational institutions have to search for new concepts of knowledge production and redefine their structures to become hybrid models of think tanks and shelters, laboratories and publishers, funders and archivists at the same time and under one roof. Interdisciplinarity is the keyword of the hour but what are the personal and social prerequisites for a successful integration of the parties involved in contemporary music teaching, practice and musical innovation including all its traditions, cultural backgrounds, instrumentalities and mentalities?
We believe that physical and social technologies where always and will always be a crucial source for knowledge production and inspiration for artists, scientists and engineers. However, with the drastic and unprecedented reconfigurations of societies and economic structures artistic practice and production of knowledge cannot but constantly ask:
Will these fascinating technologies inspire uniformity or diversity?
