With the internet, some urban spaces devoted to interaction around music are changing and even disappearing. Do internet-mediated musics like chillwave implode the notion of the urban, and, more generally, the local? Participants in this roundtable will discuss the dynamics of recent urban scenes, virtual communities of shared aesthetics, the movement of American artists and media from local scenes to global centers, and the changing notions of “place” in a world of home-based and mobile media.
With: Kyle Barnett, Paula Carino, Wendy Fonarow, Will Hermes, and Mark Richardson
Moderator: Holly Kruse
