December 4 – 5, 2013
Roosevelt Hotel – Hollywood, CA

Sync Summit is designed to be a different kind of conference – not a mere pitchfest where the connections made are soon forgotten or not followed up, or a general glossing over of the music in media market. Rather, Sync Summit is organized around fostering real, productive networking opportunities, presenting case studies of how music is discovered and used, evolving business models in the music in media market as well as creative and promotional considerations.

For the full agenda, visit SyncSummit.com.

Interview about Music Licensing Business for Billboard biz and Sync Exchange

Tatsuya had a long interview with Mark Frieser, contributing writer of Billboard biz and founder of Sync Exchange/Disconic, LLC. This was originally held as a series of interviews on Billboard biz he has been working on from the standpoint of “possibilities of music licensing business”, and the article has been pre-published on Sync Exchange and Music2Deal websites (as well as Blog page). Publication on Billboard.com is due in this early summer.

While we comprehensively covered many topics about music licensing business, these are based on what he has actually experienced and learned for years. We hope this article will be helpful for independent musicians and publishers who have been exploring possibilities of music business on a daily basis.

If you’re interested in Mark’s other interviews with Gerald Casale (Devo), Martyn Ware (Heaven 17), Chuck D (Public Enemy), Mathew Knowles (Music World Entertainment, and Beyonce’s father), etc., check out Billboard.biz and Sync Exchange pages. These precious talks with the music industry greats should be helpful for you as well.
