At FutureFest 2015, our minds were playing on the future's music.
Music has always embraced the future and wrestled with innovation – whether it’s the constant churn of fashion, the use (and misuse) of new technologies or the mavericks whose idiosyncratic visions hint at a different world to come.
Whether it is classical composition or the most cutting-edge electronic music, where do we find the sounds of the future?
