[Video] Music Tech Investors and Incubators — Investing in the LA Music Tech Scenes

Last month I had the pleasure of curating and moderating the panel “Music Tech Investors and Incubators — Investing in the LA Music Tech Scenes” at the Amplifying Music in Our Los Angeles conference produced by the UCLA Center for Music Innovation.

My panelists included representatives of investors, accelerators and co-working communities in Los Angeles that focus on music industry entrepreneurship including Techstars Music, Capitol Music Group’s Capitol360 and gBeta Music Tech Accelerator, and The Rattle LA, as well as more open format accelerators including Expert Dojo and Startup UCLA & Blackstone Launch Pad.

In this <60 minutes discussion, we covered plenty of information that any founder of a music startup would want to know about where and how to seek resources to develop, launch, or grow a music venture in Los Angeles.

Bios of my speakers can be found below the video of the panel.

Amplifying Music in Our Los Angeles

A Conference Amplifying and Connecting the Music Scenes of Los Angeles

Host: Center for Music Innovation at UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music

Location: Charles E. Young Research Library Auditorium, UCLA North Campus

Time: 9 am – 4:30 pm

Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Cost: Free for Registered Attendees


How can we support Los Angeles’ music scene(s) and work together to continue to create something robust, diverse, and dynamic in this changing era?

This day-long conference expands the conversation of how Los Angeles can grow and connect/collaborate around its diverse music scenes. If other cities are challenged by gentrification in having vibrant live music scenes, (a) why is Los Angeles seeming to be growing, despite these difficulties and (b) how we we enhance and amplify this growth?

Background

This Conference is the second in a series of events that UCLA Center for Music Innovation is holding with this Future of Music in LA focus across 2019 across LA, so we welcome you to be involved in those programs as well.

On February 6th, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs held a half-day Symposium as part of its February COMPOSE LA series of events. With partners that included UCLA’s Center for Music Innovation, they brought together different voices across Los Angeles and music to talk about the future of Music in Los Angeles.

Los Angeles is a complex environment. From panels and provocations, we came up with many things that weren’t right within the overall ecosystems in terms of policy, permitting, and procedures. We also explored our very vibrant environment that seems to be growing — despite the systemic challenges.

The Invitation

We invite the community gather again on May 15th at UCLA to both expand the conversation and to add new voices into the mix. We’re going to include people joining us from video conference from other cities and locations. We’re going to include new parties — and parties with different perspectives. And we’re going to include roundtable conversations, where the conversation will come out into and with the audience.

We invite you to join us for this community event at the Charles Young Research Library at the UCLA campus. The event will be free, along with the support from our community and marketing sponsors.

The Schedule

Sessions and the full schedule will be posted mid-April.

Becoming A Modern Music Entrepreneur

Panelists: Dae Bogan (TuneRegistry), Brian Penick (The Counter Rhythm Group), Ariel Hyatt (Cyber PR), Einar Pedersen III (Austin Music Foundation)

Breaking Artists Through Video: Your How-To Guide

Description: For artists looking to break into the Hip-Hop game without the backing of a major label, the right music video could be their ticket to the main stage. Considering video is now the primary driver of revenue for new music releases, knowing how to maximize this medium will make or break your ability to build your brand.

Panelists: Dae Bogan (TuneRegistry), Roy LaManna (Vydia), Javier Sang (WorldstarHipHop), Yomi Desalu (BET)

Right On! – Real developments in rights technology

Description: Billions of lines of data are flowing between numerous systems and to a growing number of rights holders. Royalties need speedy and accurate processing across an evolving set of usage types and all on an increasingly global scale. Emerging rights management technologies offer the potential for a traditionally fragmented industry to become more cohesive and collaborative. So what will drive real development in rights technology that can handle all of this?
The issues surrounding rights management are compounded by the phenomenal growth of a data-heavy format combined with the industry’s historic difficulties in keeping pace with advancements in technology. It is of paramount importance that age old problems be addressed.
Panelists: Dae Bogan (TuneRegistry), Molly Meuman (Songtrust), Vickie Nauman (CrossBorderWorks Consulting & Advising), Anna Siegel (FUGA)

The Future of (meta)Data

2018 was the year that the word “data” got sexy in the music industry. 2019 will be the year that data will become the asset separating successful and less successful digital services. Music credits were an integral part of physical music…and they got lost along the way in the transition to digital. And in the case of performer and attribution data, lack of accurate information is the difference between being paid, or not. Our four panelists will cover the latest developments in the data world, from political and business decisions that impact payment of your money, to discussion of what is coming down the road in terms of artist discovery made possible by hyperlinked digital music credits. And we’ll cover the basics of making sure that proper metadata is associated with your music.
Panelists: Dae Bogan (TuneRegistry), Dick Huey (Jaxsta), Cherie Hu (Billboard), Vickie Nauman (CrossBorderWorks Consulting & Advising)
