Are A New Breed Of Artists & Musicians Emerging From The Digital Swamp?
Press Pause Play
If you accept that music, art and media are effected by the environment in which they were created, then the quantum shifts caused by technology and the net are changing not just the way art is consumed, but also how it is created and the perspective of the creators. That's the premise explored in the forthcoming documentary PressPausePlay. According to the film's web site:
"A new generation of global creators and artists are emerging, equipped with other points of reference and other tools. The teachers aren?t certi?ed schools anymore - it?s web sites, discussion forums and a 'learn by doing' mentality... Collaboration over hierarchy, digital over analog a change in the way we produce, distribute and consume creative works."

"PressPausePlay is the ?rst ?lm to capture this new ecosystem," the site continues. "We meet the creatives at the frontier of production, the technical enablers of collaboration and distribution, the artists, the pop stars, the film makers, the business men, the visionaries and the ones left behind. It?s a story from the smallest molecule to the largest corporation. It?s a snapshot of today, but at the same time predictions of a near future.”
