Music Tech Meetup: Autumn Speaker Series

This month we return from a short break to kick off our winter speaker series and what better way to do it than with lightning talks! 

What is a lightning talk? 

A lightning talk is short presentation lasting around 5 minutes. 

Can I do one? 

Yes, we are inviting all attendees to sign up on the night to share your music/tech musings and wisdom with all or if you are super keen email [masked] with your name and topic. 

What can I talk about? 

Have you built something amazing? Are you using new technologies that we should know about? Do you have some thoughts on the future of music/tech? Anything goes as long as you follow the following guidelines: 

1) Music Tech focussed (this is the MTM meetup after all.) 

2) No more than 5 minutes 

2) No pitching

3) No bitching 

4) No recruitment 

There will be a projector available if you wish to demo. 

Best lightning talk (as voted by you) will win a wee prize from our pals at DeskBeers.

We look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!

    Two trains cancelled and long delays as I was trying to make my way to the event so I couldn't make it in the end. Frustrating as this looked good! :(

    Good, met nice people, I had the chance to let some of the attendees have a sneak preview of our soon-to-be-released interactive Apps for The Dream Theater and Steve Vai. Looking forward to the next meetup in January.

    Due to my recent success & the innovative marketing strategy of my music company leading me to notable mentors in the global music industry such as Scott Cohen, Scooter Braun, Mike McCready, Alex White, Tahir Basheer & many more, I was a A&R panelist with some of the world's top music executives at the Future Music Forum 2013 in Barcelona speaking about the future of 21st Century A&R using the new technology methods of scouting talent & being innovative about artist development in the field of using social media into breaking an artist into the market. I would like to speak at the next event if possible.

    I'd potentially be interested in this, but it's the same night as Music Week's Radar showcase (and I think Ja Ja Ja as well), so it's a bit difficult to make. Please let me know if there's another, though.

  • Ben G.

    Web or Graphics developers attending...? lmk ;-) [masked]
