In the first episode of series 4 we cover the feminist history of computing, albums as research projects, using Google Magenta AI as a compositional tool on YACHT’s album ‘Chain Tripping’, the changes in the platform economy as seen by musicians, making a living as a musician in pandemic times and more. This talk is one of the most far-reaching and resonant that we have had and makes a great start to this series.
