Entrancement and Entrainment – Techno-shamans from Prehistory to Berghain

Friday 11/11 — 17:00

Music and dance are a fundamental part of human activity, emerging alongside shelter and fire as a communal technology that enabled people to build cultures that held knowledge and relationships together, and that built what we know today as humanity. We have evidence of musical culture from as long as 40,000 years ago.

What was the music of the past like and how does it relate to music today?

Dr. Rupert Till is Senior Lecturer in Music at the University of Huddersfield. He has been teaching popular music and music technology in universities for over 20 years.
