Compact 2 - One Day Workshops in January 2010
Generator and Transmit Consulting have produced new music business development units for delivery as a one day bite size workshops. This workshop will help bands, producers and labels promote their own music to their fans, the media and the music industry. It will help you put together DIY marketing campaigns if you want to release your own material. Most successful artists have had their own ‘records’ out before being signed to bigger labels and this Compact will help you to take your own music to the marketplace.
This event is hosted by The Bunker in Sunderland and also has a guest speaker who currently works in A&R for a major label and has run a DIY label himself. There will also be an opportunity to listen to some of your music on the day and discuss the best strategies for its marketing and promotions.
