Press Release: Symposium »The Art of Music Education« 2024 None

Press Information

Hamburg, 6 February 2024: From 28 February to 1 March, international experts will be discussing the impact of Generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) on music in Hamburg. The most far-reaching technological change in decades is the focus of the symposium »The Art of Music Education«, which brings together representatives from the international concert-hall and music-education scenes at the invitation of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg and the Körber-Stiftung. How can music be made with AI? What future does analogue experience of live music have? What copyright challenges are involved? Sandra Wachter, Professor of Technology and Data Regulation at the University of Oxford, and social researcher Ashley Fell will be among those speaking on these questions and about topics like the upcoming »Generation alpha« and »Evaluation in music education«. Carsten Brosda, Hamburg’s Minister of Culture and Media, will address the opportunities and risks of AI in a keynote speech. In addition to lectures and discussion panels, participants will meet at practical workshops, project presentations and music performances. The participation fee is 150 euros.
