Music To Inspire Social Transformation


Music To Inspire Social Transformation

Mark your calendar! October 21-24, 2010. The Music Industry Weekend,  is open to ALL Musicians. Featured Workshops will include a presentation by Lloyd Madansky and his cigar-box guitars and how he  builds them. That should scratch any musician’s arts & crafts itch! And, Robert Gillies will be presenting a workshop on Do-it-yourself Videos. Robert will share his own techniques for economical video promotion.  A must see.

Angela Barnes Owens at the Music Industry Weekend 2009 - Santa Cruz, CaliforniaAngela Barnes Owens at the Music Industry Weekend 2009 - Santa Cruz, CaliforniaTo that end, in addition to our annual CD Listening session (where we hear samples of each other's work), we are bringing back the "Show and Tell" Session Friday morning that was so well received last year. For those that were not there last year, this exchange of personal history, hopes, and dreams gave us each deeper insight into our colleagues' individual and collective aspirations. It was a real "bonding" experience. This year, with our focus on social transformation, it should yield even greater insights!

Borna Khavari and Nima Jalali at the Music Industry Weekend 2009 - Santa Cruz, CaliforniaBorna Khavari and Nima Jalali at the Music Industry Weekend 2009 - Santa Cruz, CaliforniaWe will have a group discussion called "Songs of Social Conscience", a time when everyone can share their ideas on how to improve the world through our music! In that regard, here's a quote from Mr. Lample's book that we will discuss within the context of songwriting: "Insights from religion cannot be thrust arbitrarily into the discourse of a particular discipline". We will ask ourselves: Is this true for Music?
