Session 2A
The poetics of Net Music

Question: How does the Internet impact musical production?
This panel investigates ways that the Internet is shaping the future of musical production. What kinds of musical production will most effectively leverage the affordances of the Internet? By analyzing examples of net-based music from a variety of genres, we hope to stimulate a dialogue amongst musical practitioners and theorists about the future of musical practice online.
Moderator Helge Hinteregger, MICA - Music Austria
Speakers: Edmund Campion, tba

Session 2B
The politics of Net Music

Question: How does the Internet and online access to music impact the ownership and   
distribution of music?
The Internet has challenged ossified views about music as intellectual property. What are the politics of music on the Internet and how will new models of musical distribution change the politics of music?
What kind of economic models for the distribution should we plan on seeing in the future?
Moderator: Helge Hinteregger, MICA - Music Austria
Speakers: Professor Martin Scherzinger (NYU), Aaron Fox
