New Noise Panelists, Live

Watch Music Industry Experts Discuss Biz Ins and Outs

If you can’t make it to see New Noise’s lineup of music industry pros talk everything from emerging technologies, to the ABCs of promoting and touring, to the future of punk rock, your next best bet is to check it out here. The Independent will be offering live, streaming footage of the presentations over the next couple of days, as well as a chat option so you can compare notes with your fellow watchers. These nifty options are made possible by CMC Media, a publisher of social media networks, virtual conferences, and online magazines that offers services similar to those of Facebook and YouTube, but focused on specific communities like ours here in Santa Barbara.
