NAF Alumni Lecture: Music Innovation at the Intersection of Business, Art and Academia

musicians room

Since a year Im member of the Netherland America Foundation Alumni Committee and this month – together with Annemarie Hagenaars – I organized a lecture about Music Innovation at the Intersection of Business, Art and Academia.

Three exciting speakers offer perspectives on Music Innovation from their own fields. Questions like; are there robots that are able to improvise with music? In what ways can performers expand their audience? Does an orchestra fit in a Brooklyn apartment? How does the music business change the way we listen to music? And what can a recording engineer add to this experience?

We had a great turn-out and it was an very informative event. Via this link you can find the pictures.
