Event Details

Rob Dix from Partisan PR and Craig Smith from Ignite London proudly present:

The inaugural Ignite Music

The usual Ignite rules apply - 5-minute talks, 20 slides that auto-change every 15 seconds - but in this case every talk will be about music.

We want to dig into why music matters, how it works, how the business operates, where it's going, etc. This is music geek territory, from the orchestra to the pop ensemble, from the corporation to the bedroom studio, from shellac to the cloud, from the stadium to the saturday morning music centre. We're looking for insight into why we become obsessed with it, and why we might go nuts if it wasn't around.

The format of Ignite Music will be 12 talks, with plenty of time to gab about what's just been said. For added interest, the speakers won't be allowed the luxury of playing music during their talk.

There are 12 speaker slots. 4 will go to Guest Speakers. The rest are open to proposals from the general public.

Guest Speakers:

Matt Sheret of Last.fm, is our first guest speaker. Matt will talk about Quiz Pop; asking questions of music data

Sarah Rogers of Making Music. Sarah will talk about A Bunch of Amateurs: Why People Make Music For Fun, In Their Spare Time, For Nothing, And Sometimes Pay For the Privilege

Duncan Geere of Wired will take as his topic The end of the album: apps as art?

Sean Adams of Drowned in Sound will also be speaking

If you fancy putting your name forward, fill in this form with your name, the title of your proposed talk, a paragraph or two about what you'd like to talk about, and a few biographical notes so we can check that you're reasonably sane. Deadline for submissions is 29th March 2011.

This is the first Ignite Music we've put on - to some extent we're making it up as we go along. Some of it will work, some might not, but it will be fun, it will be insightful and it will be heartwarming.
