The inability of musicians to perform live in person during the pandemic has been painful, both psychologically and economically. Even as we try to move forward into a new normal, uncertainty remains where live musical performance is concerned. The purpose of today’s conversation is to explore avenues of musical revenue generation that can be undertaken in isolation, potentially with minimal recording equipment. All of these revolve around the value attached to music protected and compensated via copyright law.
The ability to generate income doing work of this kind will of course depend on a variety of musical and extra-musical factors including whether you are also a songwriter, producer, as well as your business acumen, entrepreneurial spirit and plain old luck. But there may be more options available to you than you were aware of. The purpose of today’s conversation is to explore those options.
6:00pm to 7:00pm: conversation with Barry and Roger
7:00pm to 7:15pm: Q&A
