Plenary Presentation in Gijon, Spain – June 27, 2013

The Cultural Capital Project was honoured to be invited to give a plenary presentation at this year’s annual conference for the International Association for the Study of Popular Music in Gijon, Spain. To a crowd of hundreds — by far the largest audience we have yet addressed — we outlined the technical basis and theoretical implications for our¬†project. Discussion following the presentation raised some important issues, such as state funding possibilities, legal ramifications, and practical considerations. At the reception following and in the days ahead, we received a lot of great feedback, and based on some of the impassioned responses,¬†we seemed to have ruffled some feathers as well. Mission accomplished!
