There are many predictions regarding the future of electronic music and instruments.
Some experts may say that the revolution will happen when all this technology can be consumed all over the world, especially Africa and Latin America that have an amazing and rich cultural heritage but wick currency. Now, even the cheaper modular synths are a fortune for a normal (middle class) Brazillian like me. Electronic and digital music needs cultural clashes to evolve from pure technology to a mass and universal form of expression.
Electronic Beats asked artists and notable thinkers like Richie Hawtin, Stimming, Henrik Schwarz, Tim Exile and CDM’s Peter Kirn for their thoughts on how we’ll make electronic music in the future, and if there might be something revolutionary on the horizon when it comes to sound.
