“‘…it’s not uncommon now for me to play in bands where women outnumber men. I think there’s a real momentum, and things are starting to shift.’ But it’s still not all that common to see a young woman leading a jazz band. Halvorson says her philosophy as a leader is to give musicians the freedom to make their own choice, in much the same way that she found her own voice on the guitar. ‘For me it’s more a matter of just trusting my instincts, even if you have a really simple idea — just, OK, I like this, I’m gonna play – and not worrying too much about what it is, what it sounds like, or doesn’t sound like,’ she says. ‘So I try as much as I can to play what I like, and trust what I like.'”

Reading Room: Four Trends In Understanding Audience

Four Trends In Understanding Audience: Measurement, Streaming and Politics

“Is there a correlation between value and attention in the arts? Data’s in: the plus/minuses of live-streaming… Some ideas from a researcher on measuring aesthetic experience… How might the arts weigh in on politics without being dismissed? Why Are We Measuring Cultural Value In Attention? The currency of value is attention.”

“Sugano admits that working with musicians is different to commercial briefs but allows the agency to use technology in way that’s important and interesting for the agency overall.’The common aspect to both of these was the sense that they were a joint creation of works that involved collaboration between artist and creators and not just a simple commercial relationship. We at Dentsu Lab Tokyo are a team that researches and develops technologies and expressions through implementing actual production projects. While Björk and Brian Eno are artists with totally different personalities, they are both pursuing the aesthetic fusion of new technologies and expressions,’ he says.”
