The aim of this discussion is to map out the situation of shared music making in the electronic music cultures. With the prominent cultural figures of the DJ as well as the electroacoustic composer - both soloists - we can ask if the millenial ensemble tradition in music has changed with the adoption of electronic music tools. How is collective music making taking shape in the electronic era? – Otso Lähdeoja

Otso Lähdeoja is a researcher in the digital arts, Academy of Finland fellow, composer and guitarist. He holds a doctorate in music from Paris VIII University and has taken part to and lead a myriad of crossover artistic projects in Europe, North America and Asia. A leader of multiple research projects, Otso has just started a 5-year Academy of Finland-funded research project, with the subject “Intersubjectivity in Music; the Perspective of Technological Mediation".

The MuTeFest discussion is an emanation of this research project, fundamentally asking what is shared musicianship in electronic music, and what tools could be developed in order to enhance shared electronic music making.

You are welcome to join the conversation!
