Future Music

16-17 June 2021


This third edition, produced by the RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music (PRiSM), celebrates our love of cross-disciplinary collaboration.

We’re excited to link machine learning specialists with audiovisual artists, and hear health data researchers perform music created from their own COVID-19 experience. And we’re thrilled to present be closing our event with the world première of The Awesome Machinery of Nature, a new work commissioned especially for Future Music #3 by our first PRiSM Scientist in Residence Memo Akten, who will also give The Michael Kennedy International Research Lecture.

RNCM began Future Music back in 2019, examining developments in new music and technology – Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality, Live Coding and more besides – asking what possibilities lie ahead for the music creators of the future. In 2020, Future Music #2 focussed in on Artificial Intelligence – examining how we might use technology to work creatively together in new ways.
