The Digital Discotheque. Club Events in the Internet Age
Keywords:music, dee-jay, club event, digital discotheque
AbstractThis paper aims to explore the receptive and aesthetic characteristics of the discotheque (or club) event as it has become a digitized and globally shared phenomenon of internet culture. By analyzing DJ Harvey’s performance at the Boiler Room Milan, I will point out, first, the immediate experience of this new form of entertainment in juxtaposition to traditional clubbing; second, the wider implications of this shift, particularly in terms of the roles of the DJ and the club space, aspects of performance, participation as well as social practices.
