Staff Reviews


Barry has put together a complex (and very funny) historical account of the different ways famous musicians have imagined the future of music. Whether it is sci-fi written by classical composers or experimental soundtracks to imagined utopias, Barry writes with such vivid detail and passion that it makes one imagine that the future of music will be bright.

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.
