The Music of the Future is not a book of predictions or speculations about how to save the music business or the bleeding edge of technologies. Rather, it’s a history of failures, mapping 200 years of attempts by composers, performers and critics to imagine a future for music. Encompassing utopian dream cities, temporal dislocations and projects for the emancipation of all sounds, The Music of the Future is in the end a call to arms for everyone engaged in music: “to fail again, fail better.”
