What do you want to achieve by attending our meet ups?

Get to know some of the other folks passionate about music tech. Brainstorm/assist where possible on new projects.

Share what you've done/doing with Music & Technology!

Led investment in Thumbplay (Acq. by ClearChannel) at my prior platform. Completed a thesis back in '05 that, among other things, included a quantitative analysis of how variables such as TV song placement, video game placement, and Pitchfork ratings correlated to an album's success on the Billboard charts.

What part of combining music with technology do you find most intriguing?

We're in the early innings in harnessing the power of digital music, much like the 90s were the early innings of ecommerce. Availability is no longer the problem, but discovery and delivery very much are.

What are your favorite music Apps?

Wolfgang's Vault, WhoSampled, Songza, Animoog, TouchOSC

iTunes or Spotify?

Serato :-) But seriously, iTunes. Spotify UX improving greatly, especially on tablet, but still generally miserable on mobile. Mobile discovery still tougher on Spotify than iTunes.
