Music is powerful—it's emotive, nostalgic, and part of our everyday lives. It's also radically changing.

Developments in the way music is made, funded, distributed and consumed are guided by technological advancements. As these two industries collide, we're stuck wondering, is this a good thing? Or are there negative consequences for musicians and our wider society?

We've partnered with our friends at Side Door to bring Alan Cross, Canadian music historian, journalist, and radio host, to HCMA to discuss how music is changing and why it matters on July 17.

This unique TILT Talk will be similar to a live performance of Alan's show,
The Ongoing History of New Music, where he focuses on the world of alternative rock and what the genre means to the music of today. Audience participation is not only welcome, but encouraged!

We'll also be joined by Vancouver's Ian Cromwell from Locals Lounge who will be playing live to open and close the event.
