Throughout the centuries, musicians have never ceased to invent, discover, explore new ways to express themselves. Particularly in Western music, evolutions have been drastic and rapid, moving towards greater complexity, new timbres and highly sophisticated forms. At the same time, a growing dichotomy arose between so-called serious music and the entertainment industry.
Where are we now? How does musical creativity express itself in our global world of digital exchanges and fast-moving trends and fashions? How different is the current creative process from preceding times? How does musical creativity connect with other arts and with science? What kind of dialogue is there among those fields?
