Music Tectonics

Jun 4, 2020

This is a milestone: it’s the 100th episode of the Music Tectonics podcast! In 18 months, Dmitri Vietze and Tristra Newyear Yeager have explored 100 music tech topics and interviewed innovators in Los Angeles, New York, Cannes, France, and isolated at home. They got together on zoom to recap what’s changed in the music tech industry since the podcast launched in December 2018. How has TikTok matured as a cauldron of fandom, and how has worldwide quarantine changed its userbase? How did live streaming go from the strange stepsibling of the live music industry to the sexy stepsibling? Is A.I. more like a job-stealing robot or a new type of pickaxe for music creators? Dmitri and Tristra touch on the Rise of the Podcast, Amazon’s SmartSpeaker dominance, Indie and DIY musicians, a new wave of financialization, and how creatives are redefining music industry success. It’s all in episode 100!
