Music and technology PR firm rock paper scissors has announced the launch of the first annual Music Tectonics Conference. Designed to sit at the intersection of music, technology and business, the day long event will be held on on October 29 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
Music Tectonics will bring thought leaders and industry insiders who work at the epicenter of music and technology. Confirmed speakers include Cherie Hu, the award-winning music tech journalist (Billboard, Music Business Worldwide, and Forbes), top industry researcher Mark Mulligan of MIDiA, Ken Umezaki of Dot Blockchain, and tech innovator Arabian Prince, founding member of N.W.A.
After years of representing music technology clients and providing event planning services, rock paper scissors has built a network across the music and technology spectrum. “If this is a standard music industry conference, shoot me now,” says RPS founder and host of the Music Tectonics podcast Dmitri Vietze. “Imagine a place where decision-makers and innovators get down to the real issues over drinks and laughter. That’s where we are headed with our first year’s conference.”
More speakers and breakout session will be confirmed in the coming weeks, with topics to include:
- · Music Tech is a Global Market
- · Living in a Voice Activated World
- · The Battle for Independence
- · A.I.: Competition or Augmentation?
- · New Music Licensing Opportunities
"The rock paper scissors team puts incredible thought into programming compelling conference sessions and building an amazing attendee and sponsor experience,” says conference co-sponsor Kevin Breuner, VP of Marketing at CD Baby and the annual DIY Musician Conference. “We can't wait for the inaugural Music Tectonics and believe it is an important gathering for everyone in music technology."
