I want to start off by congratulating Music Declares Emergency
for getting IMPALA
’s Outstanding Contribution Award. An important initiative to drive sustainability in the music business.
They take donations, so here’s an idea: sometimes (it’s rare) you can get speaker fees by appearing at music conferences. For those that don’t need them to make a living: how about pledging to go fee-free in 2020 and requesting conferences to donate the fee directly to Music Declares Emergency?
My mission for MxTxF is to highlight and contribute to the music business’ most important innovations. Due to this, I’ve put a much greater emphasis on sustainability than I did in the first 100 editions of this newsletter. If you’re looking for great newsletters to follow with regards to music / tech in general, check out the sidebar on my website
for a handful of my favourites.
