Music Talks

The EECMS introduces “Music Talks” series in the Cairo Contemporary Music Day’s 5th edition which is a series that promotes the general and essential knowledge of music development which comes from a strong belief in the importance of understanding the progress in the field which has led the technologies to be part of it and of the creations of most of the sound artists and electronic music composers. This is in relation to the developed theory which has led to current complexities of music composing in general. The series of music talks and lectures welcome everyone.
