Today we're doing things a bit differently. Sean is hosting this episode solo and with three guests instead of two.
As the role of technology changes the way music is created and shared, some people are choosing to eschew the traditional roles and responsibilities to create a richer end product.
Sean's first guest is Cavin Huang who is an Associate Creative Director at Interbrand New York. Cavin works with brands to bring projects to life through all mediums including websites and apps.
He is very involved in deciding how a brand should sound, then using that to tailor a rich user experience for the consumer.
Then we hear from artist Elijah And The Grapes as well as Anthony Verderosa from KBV Music.
Anthony is KBV's Music Supervisor, Composer and Label Owner who has worked very closely with artist Elijah to compose and produce new music. They have found technology to be extremely helpful in sharing files enabling them to compose, edit and add lyrics remotely.
Some of their collaborations include:
KBV is a hybrid music company that is a record label, publisher and produces original music for picture.
Josh Kessler works at Downtown Music Publishing and has also started his own company called Heavy Duty Projects specializing in custom music creation for film, TV and other projects where music is matched with images.
Jamie and Sean meet with Josh to talk about the broken system of music publishing and royalty collection in the Digital Era. He also talks about how he feels technology will help artists get the royalties they're owed.
Then Trentino stops by to share his insights into the DJ and production landscape. Trentino won the 2013 Red Bull Freestyle competition and has been traveling consistently since then.
Trentino has collaborated on a number of projects, including a Bacardi rum project with Sean.
His song Hold On is featured throughout the interview.
Today we talk about the ways some people in the music industry are shaking up the status quo in advertising, recording and at music festivals.
Our first guest is Carlotta Stankiewicz, a Creative Director at ad agencey GSD&M. While her competitors were using sentimental music for jewelry commercials, Carlotta finds that hard-driving rock songs help her jewelry ads break through the clutter.
On the artist side, Cory Chisel is in the process of converting a former retreat for monks into a massive recording space for fellow artists. He also curates a music festival that is largely free to the public and artists use the honor system rather than stage managers to stay on schedule.
