Michael Waugh - Memes a new form of musical expression
In his lecture at 3hd Festival, Waugh, who completed his doctoral thesis in 2016 about Post-Internet identity and its impact on musical production, distribution and consumption, utilizes the symbiotic Post-Internet relationship as a platform on which he builds an analysis of the impact of social media on today’s musical expression. He studies musicians whose output displays (not always self-consciously) an aesthetic and thematic affinity with social networking phenomena such as over sharing, participatory culture, self-celebritisation, information overload, and memes.
