On 6 June, 4:30 to 10:00, the Valuing Electronic Music project (previously) will be holding a free public event, upstairs at the Lexington, 96-98 Pentonville Rd, London N1 9JB. It will feature talks, live performances, and an interactive panel discussion with electronic music producers. Come along to find out what we and other researchers are investigating, as well as to hear some great music and to put your own questions to the people who make it. A schedule and further details can be found on the Valuing Electronic Music website here. You are welcome to drop in at any time.
Valuing Electronic Music is an ongoing study of electronic music and the people who value it, carried out by Daniel Allington (Open University), Anna Jordanous (King’s College, London), and Byron Dueck (Open University). Our work explores how the value of electronic music transcends economic value for producers, DJs, and audiences – and how geographical location continues to play a significant role in the recognition of musical worth even as musical scenes become increasingly international.
