What about looking outside of music to enhance music? What if we could glean new and better insights to engage audiences and present new musical formats by involving other fields of knowledge? What if musicians and mathematicians, programmers, astronauts, lawyers and archeologists came together to find new ideas to make music an essential part of their professional lives?

Join a collaborative, hands-on workshop concerning the role of transdisciplinarity in the creation of future listeners and audience engagement, along with new format presentations and new music.
