We are so excited to announce a major community initiative we’ve been planning for the last several months.

In fall 2022, we launched our IRL event series Wavelengths, featuring dynamic community conversations at the forefront of music and tech. As the next expansion of our events platform, we are thrilled to introduce our inaugural Wavelengths Summit — our flagship conference on what’s next in music and tech, which will take place on May 6, 2023 in Bushwick, Brooklyn.

Our thesis

Our mission as an organization is to make the music industry more innovative, cooperative, and transparent. We accomplish this through a social, peer-to-peer approach to sharing knowledge and best practices for industry innovation.

The Wavelengths Summit will be an IRL extension of this mission — fostering community among the next generation of music-tech leaders, creators, and innovators through culture, conversation, and collaboration.

In a noisy tech landscape, we see more demand from music-industry professionals for a more focused environment to build community, exchange ideas, and bring new products to life. With emerging tech trends in particular, there’s a critical need for a forum that bridges the early-adopter perspective with a clear pulse on traditional industry needs, to establish a shared understanding of the issues at stake.

The experience

WHO: The inaugural Wavelengths Summit is for artists, founders, dealmakers, and innovators — within the Water & Music Community, or yet to be a part of it.

WHERE: Our inaugural summit will call Brooklyn home — more specifically, Bushwick, a mainstay center for culture, music, and technology for New York City, and in turn for the world. It is home to iconic venues like Elsewhere, Brooklyn Mirage, Nowadays, House of Yes, and more.

WHAT: The Wavelengths Summit will focus on what we feel we do best at Water & Music: Creating space for thoughtful discussion, community-building and experimental collaboration. Instead of panels, we will design the summit around more interactive, multi-way programming that showcases the experience and ingenuity of our members — with a focus on ROUNDTABLES, WORKSHOPS and DEBATES.

We are honing in on three overarching themes and topics for the Summit. We see each of these broader topics as important interests and priorities for our community, and for the broader music-tech industry at large. Programming will be distributed evenly among these topics.

  • Emerging Tech (e.c. AI, Web3, Metaverse)
  • Fandom + Community (e.c. Artists + fans, DAOs)
  • Bridging Legacy Systems (i.g. streaming, music rights)

We are also excited to be partnering with Refraction for Cultural Programming – stay tuned for more details!
