Well, it’s official! The always-incredible Future of Music Policy Summit will return to Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. on October 3 and 4, 2011. As with our previous ten Summits (that many!), Summit ‘11 will once again bring together musicians, policymakers, managers, academics, technologists, industry heads and the media to talk about the ins-and-outs of today’s music ecosystem.
Jean Cook, FMC Director of Programs and musician extraordinaire, will soon begin production on a new recording with a really cool spin.
After a long hiatus, Jean will rejoin celebrated post-rockers Beauty Pill, who are “going public” with the recording of their new album. Partly inspired by Abbey Road Studio Two, which lets fans see where much of the Beatles’ catalog was conceived, Beauty Pill will lay down tracks for the entirety of their record in a space completely open to onlookers. No performance anxiety with this band! read more
