Mat Dryhurst’s work has long been concerned with platform politics and decentralisation, manifest through attempts to seed alternative techno-cultural pathways through public proposals, teaching, and artworks. In this talk he will discuss our duty to the musical archive in the face of ahistorical algorithmic populism, and how now might be an opportunity to reconsider first principles. What do we actually stand for? How do we encode this ideology? Unpacking decentralised economic ideas such as DAO’s, Data Guilds and new Group Equity models, he will make the argument that we might want to consider a cultural hard fork.
Mat Dryhurst releases music, research, and artworks both solo and in conjunction with creative partner Holly Herndon and the record label PAN. He teaches at NYU Berlin, and is on the board of the music streaming platform co-operative Resonate.is.
