Event description
Electronic Music Conference is presenting their FREE EMC Connect series at the Commons Melbourne this June.

About this Event

EMC Connect features forward thinking artists and industry figures providing creative process insights, career development tips and industry guides for navigating your way through the ever-changing electronic music landscape.

Sessions Include:

Harvey Sutherland unpacking “Something In The Water”

One of Australia's favourite artists unpacks this wonderful song, walking us through the entire creative process from the initial idea first demo, through the sessions to the final master recording.

Facilitated by Sara Glaidous, APRA AMCOS

Real Talk - Does anyone even listen to demos anymore?

The old process of sending your music to an industry gatekeeper may no longer work. But why? How are artists being discovered in 2019? How do you reach out to the industry these days, or do you just let the industry come to you? A label A&R, a booker/manager and a distributor discuss the modern ways artists are breaking through and how much opportunity unsolicited demos can really afford.

SPEAKERS

Ant Celestino, ONELOVE

Sarah Hamilton, Ditto Music

Shelley Liu, Vita Music Group / Valve Sound

Facilitated by Arlo Enemark, Xelon Entertainment / Medium Rare Recordings

Guides For Growth: Prioritising Community

It's easy to fall for the hype around social follows and numbers of streams, but are these bankable metrics of success? In this session we look at the ways many have built a strong online and offline community around music - whether as an artist, a music collective, a party - and what has been key to their success in generating support, engagement and fandom, rather than just statistics.

SPEAKERS

Xander Malual, The Listening Co

Jerry Poon, The Operatives

Juñor Ondaatje, AUDollars / R.E.A.L Music

Paige X. Cho, Bolster

Facilitated by Arlo Enemark, Xelon Entertainment / Medium Rare Recordings

Industry briefing

An update on the issues impacting our sector either positively or negatively, from grass roots to government matters.

Jane Slingo, Electronic Music Conference

Connect Social Mixer

Closing the night out we have our mixer to socialise and build on the connections in the room over informal conversation and drinks.
