The Miracle of Sound – New Time Music 2.0 cherish art by using technology

Can there be decent quality of sound in learning music online? Will the quarantine change the way we consume music? Will e-earning be inevitable part of being a musician in the future?

Share your experiences, problems, solutions, frustrations, and amazements in the New Time Music 2.0 online conference on 4th June. New Time Music looks for practical solutions for challenging problems. We will talk about how to make the sound quality better, what kind of setting works with different instruments, how can latency be minimized and much more.

But is it really possible to make digital learning for music work like a pro? 

– Many teachers and students face this challenge in education, rehearsals as well as in performances making music through the internet, says Jim Daus Hjernøe from The Royal Academy of Music.

– New Time Music 2.0 provides a forum where teachers and students from across the Scandinavian and Baltic HE Institutions of Music come to meet a renowned team of international specialists within this field. The main objective for the conference is to share knowledge and experience, enhance collaboration and curriculum innovation, and to find new practices for music professionals to make a living in the digital future.
