Anne Balsamo started her conference today speaking about people and technology, how people are constantly engaging in the material of the world in order to create the foundation for future word making ideas. Anne mentioned in her lecture that people are starting to use new tools in technology so that they could “break the norms” and create something new, just like music. Artists are constantly “breaking the norms” in order to entertain a new or keep their audience always coming back to their shows. Turn tables are a great example of technology that helped change the music world. Turn tables provided a new style to music that nobody had thought of before, this allowed for a more unique sound and eventually a new type of music was born from it.
