Breaking Machines & Making Music: Technology and Creativity in American Popular Music
March 05, 2009 12:55PM
Dr. Andre Millard, Historian at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, will give an evening lecture on Wednesday, March 25th at 6pm at Western Reserve Historical Society, 10825 East Boulevard, Cleveland, Ohio.

The talk, titled Breaking Things and Making Music: Technology and Creativity in American Popular Music, will examine technology as a social construct, exploring the disconnect between how engineers and inventors intend technology to be used and how musicians alter and interact with machines in the creation of new sounds.

Dr. Millard will focus on several critical case studies in music and technology, including distortion and feedback in rock music, the Roland TB 303 and electronic music, sampling and scratching and the use of cassettes, and the culture of studio recording, which will present the real innovations of the Beatles at Abbey Road.
