Do We Need Music Collecting Societies in the Digital Age?
    Friday March 16, 2012 11:00am - 12:00pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    In a digital world, any transaction can be tracked, and many argue that intermediaries are not necessary to collect money on behalf of composers, publishers and record producers. Have music collecting societies adapted to the digital challenge? Discover the truths and myths about whether music collecting societies are an obstacle or an enabler for legitimate music services. Get the low-down on navigating the tricky road of licensing music for global media services, and examine whether music rights owners can maximize their revenues by leaving the collecting society model behind and going it alone.

Banking Beats: Africa’s Music Economy
    Friday March 16, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    'Aid to Africa' has been a dominant theme in the media and political arenas for many years. Yet, despite the billions of dollars in development-related aid, many argue that it has done little to reduce poverty or stimulate economic growth. In contrast, the music industry in Africa has grown exponentially over the last decade and has had a direct impact on Africa's economy. African musical acts of varying genres have worldwide recognition, concert attendance numbers are in the tens of thousands, and homegrown music festivals draw a global audience. Examine the growth of the music economy in Africa and the opportunities it presents locally and internationally.

Secrets to Fan Engagement: Innovative Strategies
    Friday March 16, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    As an artist, you've got to build social media outlets, create a mailing list, play at venues, and distribute music to build traction. While those methods are essential, they're only the first level of the equation. Today, venues and artists are experimenting with "out of the box" strategies to engage their fans, including creating their own virtual tours, podcasts, radio and TV programs, mobile phone applications, surveys, contests, giveaways, and blogs. Find out some of the newest technologies that make it easier for venues and artists to engage with fans, and get insight on how to build a gigantic fan base around the world.

Single And Ready To Mingle
    Friday March 16, 2012 12:30pm - 1:30pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    From the early days of the record business, the single has been a key tool for artists looking to be heard. From the classic 45, with its own distinctive label and artwork, to 12-inch vinyl mixes, MP3s and today's streams, clouds, and ever-evolving formats, the slice of music known as the single can break an artist and define a career. Yet the single is also widely viewed as one of the big nails in the coffin of today's record business. What makes certain records stand out, and how can the recording industry sustain itself as album sales continue to diminish?

Do Music Moguls Know a Secret About K-Pop?
    Friday March 16, 2012 2:00pm - 3:00pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)

    From the Austin Chronicle:

    Wait, do music moguls know a secret about Korean pop? It's not much of a secret anymore.

    Not when Hyuna Kim's ode to teenage experience, "Bubble Pop!," racks up 25 million views on YouTube with only two words of English in the lyrics. Not when G-Dragon & T.O.P.'s strutting "Knock Out" reflects the sort of hallucinogenic pop we haven't heard since Missy Elliott. Not when the world's most popular girl group, Girls' Generation, is David Letterman's musical guest. K-pop has been greeted on American shores with Interscope deals and Pitchfork thinkpieces.

    "I think what's made K-pop so appealing is that it's developed bands and brands instead of individual stars," says Adam Ware, panel moderator and CEO of Asian-culture network Mnet. "Each band member plays a certain personality, maybe not as specifically as Sporty Spice, but they're all characters. That leaves a lot of room for fans. You'll have 16-year-old girls that really like the 16-year-old member, and a 21-year-old girl who really likes the 21-year-old member."

    It's a formula perfected a generation ago with the world-conquering personalities of the Orlando, Fla., boy bands. It's also a template the American pop machine has distanced itself from recently, favoring grown-up, PG-13 divas. The Koreans still work in the vintage mold, favoring a spectacle of the neon, scream-until-your-throat-bleeds pop show. It's working, too; a quick Google of "K-pop flash mob" brings up giddy teenagers from London to Moscow dutifully replicating the choreography on city streets.

    "You haven't seen anything like that since Motown," says Ware.

    The debate that will probably consume a good percentage of this panel's discussion is whether pop in an exotic language can ever permanently puncture America. Can K-pop stick if we can't sing along in our cars? Ware thinks K-pop succeeds simply because it's widely available and it feels different.

    "There's no misogyny or ego, and the press isn't concerned with the sex lives or drug habits of these groups," he says. "It's fresh air from what we're used to."

Music in TV Pilots: Sales Tool or Strategy?
    Friday March 16, 2012 2:00pm - 3:00pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    Among the myriad of challenges in creating a successful television pilot, selecting the right music is frequently the most overlooked. From the score, to songs, to the perfect main title theme, there are many different elements to consider, and one question that defines them all: What is the most effective way to use music to sell a pilot, while still establishing a sound for the entire series? As a studio executive or a music supervisor, where should (or shouldn't) you compromise? With music budgets shrinking everywhere, where do the funds go ­ a skilled composer or a recognizable Lady Gaga track? Is there an opportunity for aspiring composers to save the day?

Blood Music Sex Magick
    Friday March 16, 2012 3:30pm - 4:30pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    Rock musicians have been denounced for the apparently "magickal" impact they have on audience, often reciting lyrics replete with mystical references and officiating over public rites that can appear downright sorcerous to outsiders. Is this all merely theater? Voodoo rhythms shaped New Orleans R&B and rock 'n' roll while the trance-inducing drones psychedelia borrowed from India, as well as the immersive multi-media rituals are now practiced as concert spectacle by everyone from U2 to the Black Eyed Peas. Examine the occult philosophies that found their way into the lyrics of Chuck Berry, The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie, Ozzy Osbourne, King Crimson, Tool, and others, along with the collaborations between various rock stars and prominent magicians like Kenneth Anger and Harry Smith.

SXSW Interview: Nas and Steve Stoute
    Friday March 16, 2012 3:30pm - 4:30pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    Queens rapper Nas, widely considered to be one of the most accomplished and talented artists to ever hit the mic, established his place amongst the hip-hop elite with the 1994 release of his debut album, Illmatic. The impact of his distinctive lyricism and thoughtful storytelling reaches far beyond hip hop culture and has earned him a global audience of millions. Throughout years of multi-platinum album sales, critical acclaim, controversies, and fame, Nas has undoubtedly solidified his position as one of the greatest rappers of all time. On the heels of his collaboration with Damian Marley, Nas is currently preparing his next studio album. In this special SXSW Interview, Nas will be joined in conversation with Steve Stoute, his former manager and longtime friend. As the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Translation, author of
    The Tanning of America: How Hip-Hop Created a Culture That Rewrote the Rules of the New Economy, and former music executive, Stoute has been an instrumental figure in utilizing the power of hip-hop culture to revolutionize the way brands connect with audiences.

Indie Labels-The Best Career Path for Artists
    Friday March 16, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    As the transformation of the music market continues, the good news is now everyone has access to promote and monetize their music over the internet. The bad news is that because everyone has access to promote and monetize their music over the internet, it has become harder to get noticed and make a living. Artists need to pay their dues and develop their music to the point where they are ready for a broader push. Once reaching that stage, an independent music label can take that artist’s unique selling proposition and use their connections and experience to bring them to a wider market and covert their music passions to a livelihood.

Why the Global Music Industry Needs China
    Friday March 16, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Austin Convention Center (500 E Cesar Chavez St)
    This panel will discuss the importance China currently plays and will play in the near future in the global music industry. Practitioners from very different areas of the music business will explain their involvement with the Chinese music market and why they think the world can benefit from China's fast development. We will explore how musically China has already caught up in less than 30 years what took more than 60 years in the West, and try to elucidate what will happen in the next 30 years. Will China take away the musical spotlight from the USA/UK, or will it follow Japan's footsteps and be the promise that never really took off? Are Korea's current crop of pop stars something of an omen?
