Welcome to the website for The Digital Musician by Andrew Hugill.

The aim of The Digital Musician is to explore what it means to be a musician in the digital age. It examines musical skills, cultural awareness and artistic identity, through the prism of recent technological innovations. New technologies, and especially the new digital technologies, mean that anyone can produce music without musical training.

The Digital Musician asks: Why make music? What music to make? How do we know what is good? The answers involve developing a personal aesthetic, an awareness of the context for one’s work and certain musical and technical abilities.

The website contains Playlists, a large collection of Links, Case Study pages that include full interviews and a complete Bibliography. The Projects pages contain additional projects and repertoire that is not included in the book itself.
