Musicnet Summary to 17 Nov 2018

  • Public
By MartinEmo



Kia ora tātou

I spent last week in Los Angeles with musicians, software coders, mixers, producers, educators and DJs. 1000 people from all over the world came to take part in Ableton Loop. To read what happened, head over to this blog by New York-based music education guru Ethan Hein. My main take-away from the week, was that the majority of those at the event seemed to have multiple musical projects and jobs. Our current students will have a multifaceted future working life if they are working in the creative arts.
