Salvador da Bahia
1-5 February 2013
After a grandiose start in 2012, the music-based digital culture conference and festival Digitalia goes into its second year. It is part of an ambitious endeavor that includes research, education, publications, numerous events and the establishment of a Centre for Digital Music and Culture. Digitalia is organised by the social network Audiosfera and the research group of the same name, hosted at the Institute of Humanities, Arts and Sciences Professor Milton Santos at the Federal University of Bahia under the direction of Messias Bandeira. I’m honored to have been invited as one of the curators of Digitalia.
Next year’s themes are: Music and digital culture; economy of online music; copyrights, music and digital culture; music, digital culture and innovation; transversalities. For more details see (in Portuguese):
