Encouraged by the success of the previous conference from this series in 2014, we have decided to continue our discussion on this subject and organize the second edition next year.
In today’s world, many processes referred to as globalization or globalism are significantly manifested in culture, including music. The phenomenon, ambiguous and undergoing constant transformations, marked by various contexts and diversity, raises disputes and discussions, so it is cognitively intriguing. It seems undeniable to claim that globalization has led to the convergence of the image of the world as a homogeneous whole of interrelated elements, not just economic and political, but also cultural and social.
The globalization of culture is perceived and evaluated by many artists and authors negatively, as a process of threatening the development of local cultures, leading to uniformity, amalgamation or deformation. On the other hand, it emphasizes, among other things, the values of openness to the world, the extension of cultural diversity and the pragmatic function of interpersonal communication in the digital world. It is noteworthy to investigate the homogenization and differentiation processes in the contemporary art of music.
