Since the beginning of the Internet age, the Bay Area has been ground zero for innovating the digital delivery of music content.
This has run the gamut from obvious examples -- like Apple’s iTunes and even Napster -- each in their own way helping bridge a music fan’s computer with songs from major label recording artists, indie acts, singer-songwriters, electronic musicians, garage bands and others.
But there’s always the new, new thing and other players bringing unique tech-driven innovations to the marketplace. You just have to know where to find them.
It’s where the SanFran MusicTech Summit is bringing developers, musicians, entrepreneurs, investors, service providers and organizations together in one conference hall.
Panels on music in audio-visual works, webcasting, digital delivery, social networking, legal issues and mobile apps are just part of discussions.
The future of sound is always evolving. It’s the delivery mechanism that’s being molded today.
