Hip-Hop: The Early Adopter of Emerging Technologies
Hip-Hop is well known for pushing boundaries musically but also has a long history of embracing new technology. From drum machines to samplers to computer based recording and editing, Hip-Hop artists have a legacy of embracing cutting edge technology to drive forward not only their music but the industry at large.
This keynote discussion with recording and mixing engineer Prince Charles Alexander (The Notorious B.I.G., P. Diddy, Destiny's Child, Aretha Franklin) explores Hip-Hop's innovating role in the fast paced world of music technology. Moderated by Paul "Willie Green" Womack.
