Karlheinz Stockhausen's music archaeology
24 August 2010 (Tuesday)

Friedrich Kittler: music beyond musicology?
25 August 2010 (Wednesday)

The lecture introduces the writings of media analyst Kittler and argues that he provides an inescapable challenge to the history of music and to the means we use to think about it.
