Sound I Caring.
The second presentation, by Christian Fries, was about the text “Noise” by Jaques Attali. He showed two different pieces of music written by himself, as examples of how music can be either a tool for social change, or a tool to “make money”. He talked about the theory of music, and how society is represented through music. His presentation concentrated particularly on rap music. After the presentation Karl added some information about Jaques Attali, his biography, influences and the his way of writing.
There was a discussion about the history of craftsmen, their role in society, their motivations (moral motivations for the communities or personal motivation for personal sake), and the role that Linux, machines and technology play in today’s society. There were also questions and opinions about the Open Source society, the activism it represents and the relationships between their means and their goal.
