Unprecedented times call for community-driven measures, and that is precisely what the Alberta Electronic Music Conference is doing. COVID-19 has crumpled the world’s economy and many industries are taking a hit, especially the Electronic Music industry. To tackle these measures, AEMCON has launched a FREE virtual event to connect, empower, and educate members of our hardworking industry from around the world through a series of panels, workshops, Q&A’s, and keynote speakers from June 5th-7th, 2020.
“In this time where physical proximity is impossible, conversation and sharing knowledge are vital for our industry’s survival. We need resilience, innovation, & creativity to thrive in a post-COVID-19 world.” The summit will tackle industry issues such as The State of the Scene, Fostering a More Diverse Digital Economy for Music, Digital Marketing for Artists, and Virtual Collaborations, Digital Events & the Future of Festivals. There will also be several production streams, including Soundscapes & Immersive Compositions in Ableton Live, Advanced Vocal Production and Mixing, and Scratching & Creativity.
