Special Event

MCA on The Rocks
– Ideas shaken and stirred

Comedian, collector and self-confessed architecture nerd Tim Ross plays provocateur in this season of MCA on The Rocks. Come along and say goodbye to the Australian dream, question your right to privacy and get a glimpse of the future of music.

The Real Future of Music
John Lennon once referred to Yoko Ono as “the most famous unknown artist in the world”

On the eve of the opening of War is over: (If you want it!): Yoko Ono join our host Tim Ross to ponder the future of music. Is the space between the underground and the mainstream converging? Digital music and devices have increased our consumption of both live and recorded music and provided us with access to music and artists that in a world before the internet would have been impossible. As a spin off, concert attendances are through the roof, vinyl record presses are being rebuilt and artists can personally connect daily with their fans through the world of social media.

Veteran band manager John Watson and a special musical guest will explore the impact of the Internet on record companies and the new world where artists need little more than a computer and a fast connection to go from the unknown to globally recognised overnight. What is the real future of music?
