Where Words Fail, Music Speaks

The conversation will focus on the specifics of music as an analog mode of communication between human beings that offers an alternative to the pragmatic and rational digital mode. The composer of the music creates an infinite space that prompts the receiver to close the space according to his/her own needs. The discussion will deal with problems stemming from the consumption of music in modern society where easy access and low entrance thresholds threaten to impoverish the original musical experience.

Guest: György Csepeli social scientist, Professor Emeritus (ELTE), senior researcher (iASK)
