Hip Talk

Posted by lostincci on April 6, 2011

CMCI’s Dr Nick Wilson presented a paper at ‘The Business of Live Music’ conference held between March 31st and April 2nd, in Edinburgh’s St Cecilia’s Hall – the oldest concert hall in Scotland and second oldest in the UK.

Nick’s paper, titled ‘False relations? Historically informed performers and the authenticity business’ focuses on the relationship between authenticity, historically informed performance (HIP) and the business of live music. Judging by the buzz going round the conference (with papers on live music technology, politics, regulation, history, scenes, jazz, festivals, places, and more) there was plenty of evidence to show that live music performance is far from being the poor relation to the recorded music industry.

The conference was being held to mark the completion of an AHRC funded project – The promotion of live music in the UK – a historical, cultural and institutional analysis – which will be giving rise to a 3 volume history of British live music – something to watch out for over the next year or so.
