A History of Music Technology from Antiquity to Today

Join us for a FREE lecture with Dr. Geoge Tzanetakis from the Department of Computer Sciences of the University of Victoria.

The way music is produced, distributed and consumed has always been influenced by technology. This overview highlights some interesting moments in time when particular technologies had a dramatic impact on music. Starting from the hydraulis, the first organ and keyboard instrument, to the availability of thousands of songs in portable music players today, we travel through history, making interesting stops along the way. This presentation focuses on moments when technology drastically changed how music was produced, distributed and consumed—and speculates about where this trend will take us in the future.
