The Electronic Music Conference (EMC) returns in 2019, kicking off with EMC Connect, a series of free events that will hit Brisbane on Thursday 4 July.
EMC is the leading electronic music industry event in the Asia Pacific region. Held in Sydney, it is a pivotal, annual destination event for Australian and international creative professionals, curators and tastemakers, and those that are passionate about electronic music business and culture.
EMC Connect features forward-thinking artists and industry figures providing creative process insights, career development tips and industry guides for navigating your way through the ever-changing electronic music landscape.
Running from 6pm-9pm at Fortitude Valley's Loyal Hope of the Valley, the Brisbane event is jam-packed with great sessions.
Brisbane’s YesYou will unpack their cover of Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime, discussing the interesting back story to its creation and walking the audience through their creative process from the initial idea first demo, through the sessions to the final master recording.
Another session will explore the question 'Does anyone even listen to demos anymore?' with a label A&R, a programmer and a distributor discussing the modern ways artists are breaking through and how much opportunity unsolicited demos can really afford.
The night will wrap up with a social mixer where attendees can network, socialise and build on the connections in the room over informal conversation and drinks.
