‘Disadvantaged Populations And Technology In Music’ – Press Release

Greece – This is a new book which explores the relationship

between the disadvantaged populations and technology in the

music industry. There are a number of people around the world

who are digitally divided. In other words, they have no access or

non using efficiently the technology. So, what happens when

these populations are trying catch up with the latest trends of

music listening and creation? How easy is for people who are

“disadvantaged” to use the modern technology for listening or

creating music?

 

Vasileios Yfantis follows a journalistic/scientific approach to

identify the importance of the issue. He places the problem in a

scientific framework, but uses a journalistic method (interviews)

to explore further the research area. A number of famous

musicians participate in the research by answering questions

considering technology and its impact on music. The musicians

are former or current members of the Scorpions, Genesis, Camel,

Alice Cooper, Gong, Roger Waters, Krokus and other important

artists.

 

The full list of the musicians includes: ACID MOTHERS TEMPLE, CHAOSTAR, DAVE KILMINSTER, ERIC

NORLANDER, GREG KIHN, HARALD GROSSKOPF, KANE ROBERTS, MIKE HOWLETT, ASHBURN MILLER,

PAUL MAY, SUZI QUATRO, MISS GUY, UDO HANTEN, ANTHONY PHILLIPS, COLIN BASS, JAMES KOTTAK,

MARK KOHLER, TOM BRUMPTON, STEVE HACKETT.
