New York, NY (June 18, 2007)–On the evening of Wednesday, June 20, Tekserve will be presenting a panel discussion on which four industry heavyweights discuss where music and the music industry is headed. Hip-hop scholar and journalist Harry Allen will be the chairman of this discussion.
The panel will go over a host of music topics: What have we gained, what have we lost? What are we going to hear in the next ten years? What are we going to feel? How will music be sold? How will it be produced? How will it be performed?
Prior to the panel discussion, you will hear from Steve Gordon, author of The Future Of The Music Business: How to Succeed with the New Technologies, A Guide for Artists and Entrepreneurs. In addition, you’ll have the chance to pose your own question to the panelists at the end of the discussion.
The following panelists will be sitting with Allen: multi-platinum record producer, mixer, engineer, musician Bob Power (A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, and Erykah Badu); producer/president of Shocklee Entertainment and Founder of Public Enemy, Hank Shocklee; NYC-based engineer/producer Nick Sansano (Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Sonic Youth, Galactic and Le Tigre); NY-based entertainment attorney, author and lecturer, Steve Gordon.
This panel discussion is open to the public and will be held at 8:30 in Tekserve’s main event space. Tekserve is located at 119 West 23rd Street between 6th and 7th Avenues in Manhattan.
