SATURDAY MATINÉE: PressPausePlay

PressPausePlay

Our Saturday Matinée feature presentation is PressPausePlay, a documentary asking whether our digital culture is producing better art or whether raw natural talent is getting phased out.

The internet is a powerful thing. It has opened doors to places that didn’t even exist a few years ago in everything from shopping to playing music. But is the digital age taking away from raw more “acoustic” talent? Are the virtues of a instrumentalist being overlooked for computer musicians? PressPausePlay addresses these questions in its 80 minute documentary, filmed by Swedish creative agency House of Radon. The film contains interviews from the likes of Moby, Zach Hancock and author Andrew Keen amongst others, as well as a whole heap of designers, videographers, photographers and artists.

Where do you stand on the digital vs. acoustic debate on art? Stream it below and let us know.
