Spotlight on SoundCloud Follow-up

The meet-up last night at Cafe Libertalia was a good time. Thanks to Soundcloud for sending us some T-shirts and stickers, and to David Noel who recorded a video introduction for us to watch. I'm editing the podcast of our conversation with some tracks of SoundCloud artists that Raphael and Miquel suggested, and some tracks from the recent Freedom To Share ccMixter.org event. I'll post the link here when I'm done.

Check out David's video in the interim:

Art Rocks Radio Show

Last week I filled in at the last minute for ArtisTech CEO Emily Richards and got the opportunity to record a great on-air conversation with Cynthia Gaddes and Philly Joe Swendoza about the San Diego art scene. The consensus in the green room prior to the show was San Diego's scene is maturing, and collaboration is the key. So get out there and make art!

August: Soundcloud in the Spotlight

I recently had a great skype chat with Soundcloud representative Nils Westerlund regarding Creative Commons licensed music, and how we might work together in this excited new world where music and technology are creating a new culture and sound. Between Soundcloud, ArtisTech Media and collaborative remix site ccMixter.org, there are many great avenues to take. The brainstorming session got the creative juices flowing! But where to start?

We decided that coordinating a meet-up would be the easiest and best step forward. So August 30th at 7pm The San Diego Future of Music invites all Soundcloud members to join in the discussion. How is Soundcloud changing the way we listen and distribute music online? How can we all work together in this new music world?

Start the conversation with a comment on this blog post. Are you a Soundcloud member? What are your experiences?

And Join us August 30th! It's free--Cafe Libertalia is a great coffee bar with treats--and some of San Diego's most influential will be in the room.

See you there,
