Psych Explorations of 2009

PsychExFutureHeart’s culmination to our Martian Christmases at the Zoo Countdown last week was a musical look back at the last year, of the first decade, in the twenty-first century… no easy task! Not only is music fragmenting, recombining and evolving at an unprecedented pace, so is how we access it and how it plays into our lives…even how we conceptualize what “music” is (as a product, as a service, as a personal experience, its social function, etc). With all this in mind, how can we make sense of this year in music?
