Future of Music and Technology: Sweet or Sour Notes?
November 13, 2019
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Here’s today buzz: “Technology has changed how we listen to music…and the way music is made…and created new genres” (www.ronaldshannonjackson.com). The Internet has changed the music industry drastically…early issues like illegal downloading and music sharing sites (like the now-defunct Napster) to current disputes over music streaming services and how much the artists/labels should be paid in royalties” (www.recordingconnection.com). "In our era of instant access, streaming has become ‘ground zero’ for new music" (musicfirstcoalition.org). "UK music revenues grew by 9.6% in 2017…Brits spent £577m on streaming subscriptions in 2017, up 41.9% from 2016" (www.telegraph.co.uk). We’ll ask 5 experts for their take: Michéal Castaldo, Tenor, Producer, Songwriter; Karen Willough, World Artist, Vocalist; Sandy Gennaro, Professional Touring Musician, Drummer, Speaker; Darwin Deano and Abby Samargya, Deloitte Consulting. Join us as we explore “Music and Technology: Sweet vs Sour Notes.”
