This week we continue our How-To From Home series with a masterclass on how to collaborate effectively online using the most current cloud-based tools (including Splice, Ableton and Loopcloud and others). Our panelists will also discuss the power of collaborating virtually, how it has changed the creative process in recent years and speak to current artists and industry leaders pushing the format forward. We'll hear from organizations such as Chillhop Music, and Monstercat as well as artists and mix engineers on how to best collaborate online.
The forum will be moderated by Dan Turcotte, Commercial Director at Monstercat and member of Music BC's Board of Directors. Dan will be joined by Dr. Matthew T Shelvock - who teaches at Western University and is also the Business Affairs Manager at Chillhop Music and Memoir. His recently released book Cloud Based Music Production (2020) explores the creative impacts of cloud-based music production services on the act of creation. As we'll be joined by Jonathan Winter who oversees the music direction at Monstercat, playing an essential role in the label since its inception in 2011. He focuses primarily on ensuring that the music signed is at the highest quality, by interfacing with artists and managers to provide creative and technical feedback. Notably, he has also released music on the label under the alias, "Going Quantum".
The episode will include a question and answer period where audience members can engage with our panelists.
