Amplifying Music in Our Los Angeles
A Conference Amplifying and Connecting the Music Scenes of Los Angeles
FREE REGISTRATION TO OPEN IN EARLY APRIL
Hosts: The Center for Music Innovation at UCLA Alpert
Location: Charles E. Young Research Library Auditorium
Time: 9 am - 4:30 pm
Date: Wednesday, May 15, 2019
While streaming music has expanded to 75% of recorded revenue, live music communities are where we explore, live, enjoy, and create. How can Los Angeles’ music scene(s) be supported and work together to continue to create something robust, diverse, and dynamic in this changing era?
This conference expands the conversation of how Los Angeles can grow and connect/collaborate around its diverse music scenes. If other cities are challenged by gentrification in having vibrant live music scenes, (a) why is Los Angeles seeming to be growing, despite these difficulties and (b) how we we enhance and amplify this growth?
