Last year, Cash Music raised $61.6k on Kickstarter to get its artist services platform up and running. Now the company is turning to the crowd again, this time to fund a series of conferences designed to get musicians talking to technologists. “We built a platform, now we’re building community,” explains the new Kickstarter campaign, which is aiming to raise $50k. The Cash Music summits will initially be held in Atlanta, Chicago, New York and Seattle, building on its first events in Portland earlier in the year. “Community and learning are the keys to it all; for us, the artists we work with, and as a road to longterm sustainability for music,” explains the Kickstarter page. “Education, access to information, and learning are as important to new models as the tech that powers them — and each feeds off the other.” The events will include a day of talk, a day of hacking/making and a party. In the meantime, there’ll also be a summit in Los Angeles on 16 November.
