Music and technology influence each other in various ways. Are we influenced by streaming services such as Spotify? How does music inspire us to conduct research? What are the newest tech trends in music? Three speakers will answer these questions in their own distinct ways. In honour of Eurosonic Noorderslag festival, this edition of TechTalks050 will revolve around music and technology. The evening itself will also have a musical character.
