A series of posts in which I overdo it while trying to promote a petition I'm working on: https://www.change.org/p/president-hillman-the-mills-college-music-department-and-center-for-contemporary-music-must-be-protected
Legendary Computer Music Band from the distant past
The first band to do a live-streamed performance was The Hub in 1987! (!!!) They were computer hobbyists around the Mills College music scene and are extremely influential for laptop bands and telematic music now.
A writer a ZKM is writing a book about them and their scores, which I'm very excited about. She's just put up a video here: https://www.instagram.com/tv/COfF7i_FU_L/?igshid=1isivbrhpgaj
The Hub and the band they came from The League of Automatic Music Composers were wild experimenters doing weird stuff.
Today, the same department is still doing wild experimentation coming up with the music technologies that we'll all be using in 30 years time. And 30 years from now, I want their to be students and community members inventing wild stuff then too.
So I need your help to make that happen. If you want to do just do a little, you can boost this post. Thank you!
