FMC co-founder and Technologies Director Brian Zisk is a fascinating guy to talk to, especially when he's gearing up for one of his SanFran MusicTech Summits, which bring together the best and brightest in the music/technology space along with musicians, media folks, industry representatives and others who contribute to the digital music ecosystem. With the next SFMTS set for Monday, May 18 at the Kabuki Hotel in San Francisco, we figured a podcast interview with Brian was in order.
We asked Brian for a sneak preview of the event, which features panel discussions on "The Future of the Music Industry," "Monetization," "The Studio of the Future." Speakers include FMC’s Jean Cook and Kristin Thomson, Terry McBride of Nettwerk Music Group, Tim Westergren of Pandora, Zahavah Levine of YouTube, Dean Hudson of Sub Pop Records, and FMC advisory board members Josh Wattles of deviantART and Jim Griffin of Choruss/Onehouse/Pho. (To name just a few.)
Once you get chatting with Brian the conversation can end up anywhere, but it's pretty much guaranteed to be interesting. Actually, we can't think of any other podcast interview we've done where both Hannah Montana and Frank Zappa were mentioned. So there you go.
Check out the interview here.
The clock's ticking to reserve your spot at SanFran Music Tech Summit (May 18 is, like, next week), so you should act now. You know Brian will be psyched to see you!
