Symposium on Technology in Traditional Music Performance
Technology is increasingly involved in the live performance of traditional music. Microphones and other sound reinforcement equipment is common, but traditional musicians are these days using stomp boxes, guitar pedals, loop stations and other pieces of technology on stage, and combining traditional music with all kinds of sound art.
This symposium, organised by Úna Monaghan of Queen’s University Belfast, will be discussing questions such as what type of interaction with technology is desirable? How is the available technology limited for use with traditional music? What new sounds do we want to create and combine with traditional music?
