Dating the Artist: the podcasts

10/09/2021

Futur Composé, a podcast about the future of classical music. 

Why do we listen to classical music in the architecture of a concert hall and have to maintain the silence before the concert? What if performing or listening to classical music is no longer a collective experience? In short: how do we bring classical music into the 21st century? In the podcast series Futur Composé, audiences, musicians and professionals from the music sector reflect on the future of classical music, in the midst of a time period in full development. 

A creation of Studio Hoot Hoot (Lotte Nijsten and Gillis van der Wee) in cooperation with Musica, Impulscentrum voor Muziek and Concertgebouw Brugge.
