NEW INC and Ace Hotel Brooklyn Present: digital music distribution (2022 remix)
- 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm | Friday July 22, 2022
- Atrium | Ace Hotel Brooklyn
- 252 Schermerhorn St.
Join NEW INC and Ace Hotel Brooklyn in centering a sustainable music distribution model for the future.
An evening open to all, free with RSVP.
First, a conversation, hosted by Emma Burgess-Olson (Umfang), with Jace Clayton (DJ/Rupture), Straith Schreder (palm.io), + surprise guest 🙂
Then, live DJ sets in the Lobby for NEW INC’s END OF YEAR PARTY.
digital music distribution (2022 remix) gathers a varied set of perspectives together to share their visions for a future of music distribution that prioritize artists’ ability to make a living while introducing sophisticated ways to maintain ease of access, sharing, and integration within established technological structures. As part of their ongoing partnership, Ace Hotel Brooklyn and NEW INC have collaborated with Emma Burgess-Olson aka Umfang to platform and moderate this discussion.
While the internet, video hosting sites, and streaming have provided unprecedented access to music libraries, often for free, individual musicians, artists, producers, and DJ’s have seen their ability to make a livelihood significantly shrink. Legal regulations, namely the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, allow sites to host content without paying copyrights to creators and the music industry’s payment and distribution models have become devastatingly outdated.
Can a DJ clear the rights of the music they sample and legally sell mixes while compensating original creators? Is there a new utility for publishing albums on the blockchain? Should music be free? Shared? Owned? digital music distribution (2022 remix) tries to answer these questions and more.
July signals the end of another cohort year at NEW INC. Please join us to celebrate our community, our resilience, and our commitment to supporting a more just, inclusive, and abundant art and technology sphere.
A special pair of DJs (to be announced soon) will be playing music all night long and food+drink will be available for purchase at the lobby bar.
