Prototyping the new music product with Spirit Level Lab

What does a song or album look like when artists work closely with technologists? What are the new platforms needed to support interactive relationships with fans? These are the key issues Spirit Level Lab explores.

In this forum talk, Nirmala Shome will share the work Spirit Level Lab is doing to explore and iterate on what the new music product and experience can become as we leverage these new platforms and technology.

The presentation will dive into the processes and challenges in creating interactive music experiences and the new cross disciplinary creative workflows required to bring these ideas to life. We’ll look at several projects from the lab including projects currently in development around spatial audio and 360 film and generative music.
