Millennium-watchers, sonic geographers and telematic nomads (and perhaps even a few genuine punters) converged on the South Bank in London for Now You See It, a three-day Hyperevent organised by art producers Cultural Industry.
The culmination of this series of concerts, contemporary dance and demonstrations of music from Tod Machover, Robert Fripp and Brian Eno, whose Koan 'generative music' software was on display in the foyer, came on the final day, when a formidable panel of musician-theorists, chaired by journalist and Mixing It presenter Robert Sandall, assembled on a platform with an open brief to kick ideas around and field questions from members of the public on the notional subject of 'The Future Of Music'.
