The Business of Music: How Can ‘Free’ Work for Me?

New York, NY, USA

The New School

6:30 PM

Panelist at The New School.

How did U2 make money from giving away an album? How could a band, string quartet, or small orchestra use a similar approach? What is the role of social media in launching musicians today? Can a musician make money using Vine? Can a performer make money by giving away recorded music? What are the copyright and other legal issues? This panel of musicians and industry professionals addresses these issues and much more.

I’m thrilled to join the following panelists:
Michael Whalen, New York-based two-time Emmy award winning composer & music supervisor, a Grammy nominated producer, recording artist and award winning commercial sound designer.
Barry Heyman, an entertainment lawyer with more than 20 years of industry experience.
Bill Stafford, Co-Founder, Missing Link Music, an independent music publisher.
Chris Tuthill, Director of Touring & Artist Development at TCI.

Gregory Briggler, musician, polymath, and circulation manager at the The New School’s Performing Arts Library.

Sponsored by Parsons School of Design and the College of Perfoming Arts at The New School.
