NEW NOISE DIGITAL MUSIC CONFERENCE
FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 9, 2012 @ THE SAVOY
For four years in a row, the New Noise Digital Music Conference has brought together some of the music and technology worlds’ smartest minds to discuss the future of sound, giving participants a chance to learn directly from and interact intimately with today’s biggest industry players.
This year’s conference goes down all-day on Friday, November 9, when we host dozens of visionaries, entrepreneurs, app creators, software developers, journalists, investors, artists, and organizations who are playing an integral role in shaping the culture and the future of how we produce, listen to, and discover music.
This year’s conference takes place for the first time ever at The Savoy, a nightclub located in the middle of Santa Barbara’s entertainment district. Housed in one of our beautiful city’s most historic buildings on State Street, The Savoy is being transformed into New Noise’s festival hub all week long. From Friday morning until evening, the conference is taking over all three levels with panels and conversations between the folks who aren’t afraid to tell you the truth about the music industry, including the venerable hip-hop pioneer Chuck D of Public Enemy.
If you’re an aspiring musician, someone who wants a career in music, or just an informed music fan, this is the place to be. And it’s affordable too: only $25 for a conference-only ticket. Come on down to The Savoy to be a part of the discussion!
