Medial Texts and Contexts

Daniel Weissberg
The concept of “media music” describes a music whose content is characterized by the media used to produce it. The question arises, however, whether any music is possible at all that is not “media based”. Indeed, the various media possibilities (text, music, tape, computer) also influence those domains that do not even utilize them. Daniel Weissberg investigates the challenges to musical thinking and practice that result from this realization.
