Keynote at Musikkens virkning conference


The conference Musikkens Virkning (according to Google translation this would be “The effect of music” in English) took place yesterday and today in Bergen, hosted by Musikknett Vest (Western Norwegian Music network) and Holbergdagene 2010.

I held a keynote speech this morning, talking about developments in music over the last 150 years, touching upon Erik Satie, John Cage, acousmatic music, soundscape studies, sound art and briefly mentioning ongoing research on sonic interaction design. Along the way I presented documentation from a few of the installations I have been doing.

There were quite a few interesting presentations related to music therapy, and that suggested a potential bridging between music therapy, music pedagogy and relational approaches to sound art.
