#obietwitterview: Future/Music/Innovation/ Music/Business/Music: Limits? What Limits?
On April 3, 2013, at 4:30 PM, Will Roane (@willroane), Social Media Coordinator for Oberlin Conservatory (@OberlinCon), interviewed four Obies — two current students, two alumni — about the future of music. Were all participants in the same room? Nope. This interview took place entirely on Twitter.
- Visit composer Marek Poliks's website at the link above to wrap your head around what he calls 'Research Music.' Poliks is currently pursuing a PhD in composition at Harvard University.
- Eastman Presser, also known as Steam Ship, pushes the boundaries of electronic composition, using sound to evoke not just emotion, but often intricate and highly articulated stories. Check out his SoundCloud to immerse yourself.
