Music and the creation of pleasant sound is something that is an art by itself. Be it instruments, or the human voice the topic deserves a track all to itself - and is also a space that is still quite nascent in a country like India.
We are looking for topics around … songwriting, managing and promoting your own band, musical instruments (there are some pretty cool things happening with tech there), discussions around music genre, sound engineering, discussions for and with audiophiles - even a bit around sound mixing or synthesizing and sound production (though a bit of the last one will come in sound engineering).
We’d also imagine you’ll have topics and conversations to share around singing lessons (maybe your experience with it - and if you figured out if you have the winning voice), discussions around music education, the impact of music on the soul and person, or even if you want to start a debate on different genres or styles of music.
If you have some insights around any of these, are would consider yourself an expert - or want to moderate a session (and invite some experts) please do.
What is the future of recorded music?
Explore various music consumption models and how we can continue to monetize recorded music.
It is now a long gone conclusion that the recorded music industry is dead. But that doesn’t mean people have stopped consuming music, infact, music consumption is at an all time high. I would like to explore what the future of recorded music is and how we can create monetizable products for this future.
I am Gaurav Vaz, bass guitarist and manager of The Raghu Dixit Project, a contemporary folk band from Bangalore, India. Over the last 10 years, I have been part of India’s fast growing indie music industry and have performed in over 25 countries with my band.
My passion lies in Music Business and I run a couple of other initiatives that help mentor artists, book shows and manage events for brands and corporates.
