No Genre, Just Vibes: perceiving ourselves the way AI and finance perceive us

This week I’m giving one of the keynotes at the Information Overload: Music Studies in the Age of Abundance conference. It’s virtual, and registration is free.

Here is the full text of my talk. This is the first in-depth writing I’ve done on “vibes” discourse in pop culture. If you want to see the bigger picture/where this is all going, check out this Twitter thread.

Hope to see some of you at the conference!
