Discussion: Genre Bubbles

Description

To some extent, music genre bubbles remain segregated in record shops, on radio, and in festival and club programming. But does genre really have relevance in an age of online streaming, where Spotify categorises music according to activity and anything goes in TikTok? DJ sets bounce between tracks, styles and eras at a furious pace, and experimentation bleeds into the world of pop like never before. Are we already living in a post-genre world? What does this mean for the future of music – both for creators and listeners – and how does it relate to other aspects of contemporary life? With artists Yung Singh, Marina Herlop and Eris Drew. Moderated by Philip Sherburne, contributing editor to Pitchfork.
