*Budapest, 19-20 May 2017*____

The conference aims to address the relation(ship)s and communication between people, formal and informal institutions, and technologies in the context of music making. Understanding and exploring music scenes as networks can help us to uncover the power relations that affect those scenes, while also leading to a nuanced understanding of the changing technological and media context in which music is produced, disseminated, consumed, and talked about.____

  * Music scenes and formal and informal communication infrastructures
    in view of the related technologies and economies____

    Analysis, Actor Network Theory etc.____
  * Communication in and about music scenes____
  * Power as formal and political, as well as informal and subcultural:
    inclusion and exclusion____
  * Musical diplomacy, music scenes and transnational communication____
  * Technology, power and remembering/forgetting music scenes____
  * (Sub)cultural and other forms of capital in music scenes____
  * Music scenes and DIY media, online and offline____
  * Music scenes and digital technology: change and/continuity____
  * Underground scenes and the formal music industries: power and
  * Music scenes and society: the reproduction and/or subversion of
    power structures through technology and communication
  * Local – global dynamics and power: the global music industries and
    local infrastructures____
  * Gender, sexuality and music scenes____
