029 – Matt Bond, Founder, CEO of Treble.fm

MSCLVR Interview Series #029 with Matt Bond, Founder, CEO of Treble.fm

This episode of the podcast is featuring the inestimable Matt Bond – founder CEO of Treble.fm – a mobile marketplace of sorts where musicians looking for collaborators can talent in their area for all things music including production, mixing, mastering, to album art, press and video.

We recorded today’s interview a few weeks ago in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones – be sure to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to record and play audio back in 3D sound – if you have no experienced 3d sound it will undoubtedly change the way you experience your content consumption – mind blowing stuff really! Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser.

This is another short but sweet one from The Digilogue and the story of Treble.fm is definitely one to watch. The young company has already been featured by media outlets like Complex and they’ve had a few break out success stories of Artists finding collaborators whereby those new connections resulting in new music generating millions of streams — and Matt and the team at Treble get to revel in the satisfaction that their efforts are having the desired impact.

What if Andre and Big Boi of Outkast never met? You might be able to ask that same question of every group or band you admire.  Whether by chance or by Craigslist – technology always seems to find a way to increment industries towards greater odds of success and I believe Matt is definitely onto something w/ Treble and no doubt the world will be impacted by the collaborations that are facilitated thanks to their work.

028 – Jordan Chalmers – Digital Marketing Masterclass

#028 – Digital Marketing Masterclass w/ Jordan Chalmers @ The Digilogue Future of Audio Series (powered by Sennheiser)

Today’s episode is another special installment of the podcast featuring live recorded content from the “Shape The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue based in NYC and powered by none other than Sennheiser – if you are not familiar Sennheiser shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique culture of innovation, a passion for excellence, and rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones and if you’ve been tuning in you’ve certainly heard me raving about their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to both RECORD and playback your content in 3D sound – to learn more about that check out the links down below and we talk a bit more about that at the end of this episode!

The Future of Audio Series was an intimate 4 day summit in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood at the Interface creative lounge in early October of this year. It was a really great event consisting of  live music performances, interactive guest panels, and masterclasses like the one you will hear now Industry folks extensive dialogue on topics like VR, 3D audio, the present and future economy of streaming music, and all manner of related topics in between. And thanks to our friends at Sennheiser – it was free to attend!

If you didn’t get to participate this time around be sure to check out future events at www.thedigilogue.com and fear not, the MSCLVR podcast was there to record interviews many of the speakers and panelists and, of course, we are also bringing you the recorded audio so that you, too, can benefit from the awesome knowledge transfer that occurred each day.

Today’s release is from the “Digital Marketing” masterclass recorded on Oct 6th, on Day 3 of the series hosted by the super talented and quite frankly, supremely engaging Jordan Chalmers! Jordan is one of those guys that is so good at pattern recognition and pushing the envelope that they had to create a new role for him at Atlantic Records where he is now the Lifestyle and Influencer Marketing Manager.

We’ve spoken about Influencer Marketing in music here on the podcast before so if Jordan gets you excited about this topic definitely check out the interview we did w/ Nick Yeeles in episode number 8 back in July!

In this masterclass Jordan gives the audience a literal plethora of examples of clever and, just as importantly, achievable digital marketing and influencer partnership strategies that he employs at Atlantic Records for Artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B, Bruno Mars and more.  

The implications of this conversation are relevant to all who have an interest in the expanding world of Influencer marketing which presumably includes you if you’re still with us and in you’re absolutely in for a treat – so without further ado….The Future of Audio Series: Digital Marketing Masterclass by Jordan Chalmers!

027 – Abhita Austin, Future Music Moguls Program, NYU

MSCLVR Interview Series #027 w/ Abhita Austin, Future Music Moguls Program, NYU

This episode of the podcast is featuring the super talented Abhita Austin, recording engineer, music producer, and wearer of many hats including leadership roles at Gender Amplified (celebrating and supporting women in music production), Pushing Buttons Collective, as well providing instruction at Future Music Moguls Program at NYU. And I know there is more but you get the point – Abhita stays busy!

We recorded today’s interview a few weeks ago in NYC at “The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue powered by our friends at Sennheiser – Sennheiser is shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique approach to audio innovation, a passion for excellence, and, of course, a rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones – be sure to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset that allows you to record and play audio back in 3D sound – if you have no experienced 3d sound it will undoubtedly change the way you experience your content consumption – mind blowing stuff really! Stay tuned to the end for info on The Digilogue and their partnership w/ Sennheiser

This one like the episode we dropped last week w/ Chen Lo is short but very sweet – Abhita was kind enough to sit with us shortly before she gave her Intro to Logic Masterclass which you can find on this very podcast – it should be the episode just ahead of this one so if you missed it definitely give it a listen if are interested in music production, the Logic software suite, and/or are just curious about how beats are made.

In this discussion we get a bit more background on how Abhita has thrived in stereotypically male dominated fields. She played the drums growing up so perhaps that early experience of being somewhat of an “outlier” prepared her mentally for her eventual decision to pursue music production and engineering – another vertical within the music industry that has generally attracted more men and thus, made it challenging for women to get their due recognition in many respects.

Abhita was such a fun person to interview and I hope we can get her back for a MSCLVR After Dark – I am sure she’s got some great stories we all can learn from!

#026 – Intro to Logic Masterclass w/ Abhita Austin @ The Digilogue Future of Audio Series (powered by Sennheiser)

Today’s episode is another special installment of the podcast featuring live recorded content from the “Shape The Future of Audio” Series produced by our friends at The Digilogue based in NYC and powered by none other than Sennheiser – if you are not familiar Sennheiser shaping the future of the audio industry with a unique culture of innovation, a passion for excellence, and rich history of high end product development ranging from headsets to microphones and you audiophiles out there will def want to check out their recently released Ambeo Smart Headset with 3D sound – it will blow your mind!

The Future of Audio Series was an intimate 4 day summit in NYC’s Chelsea neighborhood at the Interface creative lounge earlier this October.  There were live music performances, power packed panels, and masterclasses where Artist and Industry folks shared in extensive dialogue on topics like VR, 3D audio, the economics of streaming music, and all manner of related topics in between. And thanks to our friends at Sennheiser – it was free to attend!

If you didn’t get to participate this time around be sure to check out future events at www.thedigilogue.com and fear not, the MSCLVR podcast was there to record interviews many of the speakers and panelists and, of course, we are also bringing you the recorded audio so that you, too, can benefit from the awesome knowledge transfer that occurred each day.

Today’s release is from the “Intro to Logic” masterclass recorded on Oct 5th, on Day 2 of the series hosted by super talented engineer/producer, and educator at the Future Music Moguls Program at NYU  – Abhita Austin!

In this masterclass Abhita takes the audience through beat production in the Logic software suite from scratch!  Now I know what you may be thinking – “what can I take away from just the audio when I can’t see her navigating the tools on screen?”

What I think any listener can take away from this audio segment is hearing how a master of production thinks through her process, the best practices she employs, and, of course, she does a great Q&A at the end so if you’ve ever wanted to dabble in music creation there is something in here for you!

We had a chance to catch up with Abhita for a 1:1 interview so make sure you’re subscribed and stayed tuned for that interview – you won’t want to miss that!

The implications of this conversation are relevant to all who interested in music production, the Logic software suite, and/or are just curious about how beats are made.

020 – Taryn Southern, Digital Storyteller, Music Futurist – AI, 360, and VR…oh my!

MSCLVR Interview Series #020 with Taryn Southern, Digital Storyteller, Music Futurist – AI, 360, and VR…oh my!

This episode of the podcast is featuring the beautiful, the talented Taryn Southern! You will have certainly heard Taryn’s name on this podcast before in our interviews w/ Drew Silverstein (CEO of Amper Music) and Milana Rabkin (CEO of Stem).  Taryn’s name will have come up a few times undoubtedly in praise of her talent and likely moreso her willingness to take risks.

Taryn Southern is a digital storyteller and in the title of this episode I refer to her as a music futurist. My experiences of Taryn over the years have been of a woman of grace and humility so I don’t know that she would describe herself that way but I think it’s appropriate given the boundaries she has pushed and the new ones she continues to cross.
