Abstract

This year, I have been creating Maestro, a music platform providing new ways for audiences and performers to interact and engage with music. In my capstone project, I will detail Maestro's development process from inception to current iteration, and then frame it in the context of other technologies in music, beginning with the early 20th century. This will include the use of wax cylinders, magnetic tape, the internet, and even the orchestra. By investigating how people engaged with these mediums, I will clarify my target audience, and what I can contribute to how we think about music.
