October 24th, 2011Conference
The DIY conference had the Dutch premiere of the PressPausePlay documentary, a film about hope, fear and digital culture. A while back we that the documentary was downloadable at their in two versions, the normal one and the interactive version. It has interviews with Moby, Seth Godin, Andrew Keen and Bill Drummond (who also gave a lecture and performance at the DIY conference).
During the DIY conference we first showed the documentary and afterwards there was a panel. The members of the panel were Philip Marthinsen (producer of PressPausePlay), Dwight Witherspoon of Ericsson Sweden, who made the film possible, hip-hop and electronica producer Daedelus (a.o. Ninja Tune, Stones Throw, Brainfeeder and Warp) and Arnold de Boer, since long the guy behind Zea and since two and a half years singer and guitarist in The Ex. The panel was moderated by Erwin Blom.
The discussion involves the digital revolution of the last decade, which has unleashed unlimited creative opportunities. Main questions of this panel are: Does democratized culture mean better art, film, music and literature? Is it cultural democracy or medicrity? Watch the panel below and give us your opinion about it!Tags: arnold de boer, conference, daedelus, diy, ericsson, incubate, presspauseplay
