A tribute to musical formats

Yet again, we ponder the thought of where music is bound and headed, how an amalgamation and miniaturization of the creation process has been fueled through the advancement of technology, opening up a plethora of undiscovered opportunities which were not available in the era of 2 inch tapes, large boards, outboard equipment.

During its 2011 tenure in Madrid, the Red Bull Music Academy paid tribute to this evolution with an exhibition, various lectures and a special formats-themed party. In this mini-documentary, musical luminaries such as dubplate champion Hatcha, laptop wizard Clams Casino, and legendary disco edit master Greg Wilson, discuss how each format has become emblematic – and indeed, defined the sound of an era.
