(RE)DEFINING DISTRIBUTION: ROLES AND CHALLENGES IN A CHANGING MARKET
Thursday, May 29 / 2pm - 4pm
Nearly ten years of unabated artistic growth in the field of electronic music has justified the genre's capabilities to draw its share of the market.But recently the music market has begun to wane. A panel of distributors will speculate upon reasons behind the decrease in market size, as well as their roles and responsibilities toward the music. Is it a matter of a decline in the overall quality of the music? Or are changes necessary in the relationship between independent labels and distributors? After an assessment of the current situation, panelists will discuss what can be done to accommodate an increasingly challenging market, and the roles that labels and retailers have to play in order to reestablish electronic music within the purview of consumers.
