Music x Design

Oct 26, 2017 @ 7 p.m. in New York

Music is a foundational element of our all human cultures. Music is always changing, reflecting the moods, technology, and mentality of the era. It is as ancient as history, and part of each day in the human experience.

This session of Designers + Geeks will feature talks from designers working with the medium of music. We'll look at the creation, consumption, and appreciation of music in modern technology. If you love the creation and stories of music, this session is for you.
