How do you use music technology to reach a wider diverse audience?
How do you use music technology to reach a wider diverse audience in your chosen artistic medium (ex. jazz, classical, celtic, rock, reggae, etc.). Do you find that technology helps or hurts your artistic expression?
For example, I write complex electronic music often mixed with experimental classical music. Through technology I am able to reach thousands of music "fans" through social media, collaborative works (like my recent virtual opera that was produced entirely online) and other projects, and my writing projects. Audiovisual technology allows me to create large scale works for a fraction of the cost and share them with the public immediately.
On the flip side, reaching out to the "mainstream" is almost impossible through more traditional forms of media like TV and radio for independent artists, and online popularity does not always translate into a viable income.
How do you personally combine technology and music in your artistic and creative endeavors, or in your business? Is there a way for an independent artist to soar above the wave of sound?
Would like to hear your thoughts....
