UPDATE: OpenMusicMedia #7 – Videos & Music (1st July 2009)
June 24, 2009
Because of the tube strike in London we had to cancel this event but we have now confirmed a new date.
We look forward to seeing you on the 1st July 2009 at the William to discuss Videos & Music. You can find all details below:
In all our previous OpenMusicMedia sessions the focus has primarily been on music – we talked about recommendations, live music, different ways of consuming recorded music and of course how the whole ecosystem of music works (or not) and what has to happen to make it work in the future.
For our next night we want to discuss an art form which has always been closely related to music: videos. We have invited Caroline Bottomley who is the founder of Radar Music Videos, “a music video commissioning platform and music video director network” to present us with her ideas on the future of music videos. She will be explaining why her website is important for musicians and video producers and from there we will try and explore how digital technology has been affecting visual content.
As always the conversation will kept very broad – topics we want to talk about include:
- Do artists need music videos these days?
- Is it easier of harder to get exposure for your music videos in the age of YouTube?
- What makes a video ‘viral’?
As always this will be an open discussion and you will set the topics for this night. We’ll be starting the discussion at around 7pm but feel free to be there by 6pm and have a drink with us. You can find all the details below, if you have any questions, leave a comment or contact us via twitter.
The event is free to open to everyone but if you can please RSVP at our new Facebook group.
6:00 PM – 11:00 PM
