As the Nashville music industry tries to adapt to the changing marketplace of music delivery, help is on the way next month to demystify the technological forces of new media. The nonprofit group Leadership Music is organizing Nashville’s first digital summit, called “Today, Tomorrow (and the Day After),” to be held at Belmont University’s Curb Events Center April 5. Speakers including Mike Conte, general manager of MSN Music, and Chris Gorog, chairman of Napster, will discuss cutting-edge issues involving the digital and wireless delivery of music. Also involved in the panel discussions will be industry leaders from new media companies such as Starbucks, Motorola, MTV, Liquid Digital and Virgin. Workshops will cover everything from download music stores, to sales of ringtones, to how independent and major record labels can make money with new media, said event co-chairman Fletcher Foster. – See the whole story online at NashvilleCityPaper.com.
