Ian Condry is currently on sabbatical to work on his new book tentatively titled “Everything is Free Now, and Why That’s Good for Music and Musicians.”

He reports that he is conducting fieldwork in Tokyo, Boston, and Berlin, and recently returned from Backnang, Germany, where he observed new “spatial mixing” technology at d&b audiotechnik.

Condry, along with DJ Rekha, recently performed at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, for the opening of the Takashi Murakami exhibit.

He is organizing a conference called Dissolve Music @ MIT, March 7-9, 2018, which will explore the leading edges of sound experimentation, music studies, and audio technology.  More info at mitdissolve.com.
