THE GENRE ISSUE: GIVE ELECTRONIC MUSIC A BREAK!
Wednesday, May 28 / 10am - Noon
The peculiar case of the marketability of electronic music is a trying effort at the best of times.The sheer acceleration of the genre into continuously evolving sub-genres presents the industry with the problem of how to go about selling a form of music that is constantly rejecting its origins in an effort to establish new avenues of creativity. The design of this panel is formulated to best address this subject from both the domestic and international perspectives. Assembling experts from every stage of the music development process -- including artists, publicists, label managers, distributors, promoters, and the media -- the panelists will discuss the advantages and limitations of a musical genre that relies on such accelerated paradigm shifts not only for its integrity, but also for its definition.
