Together Alone. Musical Practices between Collectivity and Individuation

Current societal transitions are reshaping the collective and individual aspects of musical practices. The interconnectedness of global actors has fostered the emergence of new collectives and reconfigured conventional understandings of identities. Meanwhile, the ubiquity of the digital has made the creation and consumption of music an increasingly individual and fragmented experience. Drawing on interdisciplinary perspectives, this series contributes to a contemporary diagnosis of musical matters at the intersection of materialities, practices, and knowings.

With lectures by Thomas Burkhalter, Timothy Dowd, Nina Sun Eidsheim, Kai van Eikels, Astrid Erll, Luis-Manuel Garcia, David Hesmondhalgh, Ana Hofman, Simone Mahrenholz, Andreas Meyer, Rolando Vazquez, and Adel-Jing Wang.

The event takes place at the Art House Cinema, Future Art Lab, Anton-von-Webern-Platz 1, 1030 Wien and online via Zoom.
