The Music Tectonics conference’s ‘Swimming With Narwhals’ pitching contest has a track record of highlighting interesting music/tech startups.
Stem-separation startup Audioshake has another feather in its cap this month: it won the Swimming with Narwhals startups contest.
The Music Tectonics conference is fast making a name for itself as one of the key music/tech events in the US, and that includes its ‘Swimming with Narwhals’ startups contest.
The US-based Music Tectonics conference responded imaginatively to Covid-19 disruption, holding much of its last event in a virtual world.
The Music Tectonics conference is set to take place in October this year, and now it has confirmed details of its ‘Swimming with Narwhals’ startups contest.
Last year’s Music Tectonics conference in Los Angeles was a welcome addition to the industry calendar, and it’s returning for its second year on 28-28 October.
As with other conferences, the event will be online, with the promise of “highly interactive small-group and one-on-one networking” and exhibitor/demo rooms, along with panels and keynotes.
Among the confirmed speakers so far: WMG’s Scott Cohen, Water & Music’s Cherie Hu, Roblox’s Jon Vlassopulos, Panache Ventures’ David Dufresne, and Feed·fm’s Lauren Pufpaf.
Tickets will cost $59, with a ‘VIP’ option for $300, and AdRev, Linkfire and Super Hi-Fi are signed up as sponsors. Find out more at the Music Tectonics website.
