This next phase of music tech is taking opportunities for artists way beyond promotion and small royalty payments. AI-generated music is directly tied to distribution and revenue. Artist-programmed skills on voice-controlled devices make the artist-fan connection personal. How else will music tech evolve in 2020 and how can you prepare for it?

Last year we discussed Blockchain and Hip Hop; now let’s turn to the other category of blockchain projects: token economies. Here lies a unique angle and market which can help independent music artists unlock new financing opportunities, without having to sacrifice their ownership rights and contract rights, including control of future royalties to intermediaries and recording companies. Token economies recognize and reward fans for coming to the stage and utilizing services. Tech This Out’s panel will explore and examine how artist will be able to sell tokens to fans directly in order to raise funds for creative projects.

Social content platforms are evolving past simple post-like-and-comment formats like Twitter and Facebook. The next wave is more like call and response with the viewers getting directly involved with content creation. From livestreaming, where viewers influence content creation in real time, to short-form video platforms where entire memes riff off of one post and songs go viral overnight, how fans interact with artists on socials is changing dramatically. What are the platforms to watch out for and how do you know which ones to join?
