Live Stage: Future of Music Seminar [us NYC]

future.jpgFuture of Music Coalition presents – What’s the Future for Musicians? seminar :: October 6, 2008 :: Public Theater in New York, NY.

What’s the Future for Musicians? Today’s music landscape is filled with both excitement and foreboding. With so many new technologies and ways to promote and distribute music, how do performers, composers, songwriters and independent labels know how to participate, who to trust, and what is most effective?

In the Future of Music seminar musicians from all genres — classical, jazz, rock, folk and hip-hop — will learn about a range of internet-based promotion and distribution options, how to navigate the health insurance landscape, the importance of open internet structures and how copyright law and business models are affecting how musicians will be compensated in the digital future.
