9am – 4pm
Aimed at aspiring recording artists and songwriters – and future music industry talent – the first edition of Music:DIY will take place as part of Norwich Sound + Vision at the Norwich Arts Centre on Friday 13 Oct 2017, hosted by CMU’s Chris Cooke and featuring fifteen guest interviews and an in-conversation with Blur’s Dave Rowntree.
Music:DIY is a day of talks and interviews that together provide a practical guide for artists on how to build a business around their music. Across the day, artists will learn all about their revenue streams, assets and music rights, plus their routes to market – from putting on a show to building a fanbase to choosing the right business partners.
Music:DIY recognises that being an artist today is a multi-faceted enterprise. Attendees will pick up all the knowledge and advice they need to get their artist business started, and to then develop and scale their business and their career within the modern music industry. They’ll find out that DIY doesn’t mean ‘do it yourself’ but ‘do it your-way’.
Each edition of Music:DIY will feature formalised teaching from CMU’s Chris Cooke, plus a series of interviews with fifteen music industry experts, including artists, agents, promoters, labels, publishers, managers and music journalists. Attendees will also get to hear from established artists who are active members of the FAC. Artists due to speak at the Norwich S+V edition of Music:DIY include Dave Rowntree, Roxanne de Bastion, ShaoDow and Eckoes.
