VEM at MeCCSA 2015

I’ll be speaking on the team’s behalf at the 2015 conference of the Media, Communication, and Cultural Studies Association next week. My paper is entitled ‘The valuing of electronic music’, and will form part of the ‘Music and affect’ panel from 16.45-18.15 on 7 January 2015. This follows Anna’s presentation at the 5th International Conference on Computational Creativity, Byron’s presentation at the British Forum for Ethnomusicology 2014 one-day conference, Anna and Byron’s presentation at the 9th Digital Music Research Network workshop, Byron’s and my contribution to the Open University Digital Humanities Seminar Series (which was video recorded and will be uploaded to the web shortly), and my presentation to the Creative Data Club, as well as a few other presentations in private contexts – and of course the live event. It’s been really great to feel the level of interest in this research, both within and beyond the ivory prison cell.
