NYC was the birthplace of popular recorded music, but in recent decades songwriters and producers have decamped to Los Angeles for space and cheaper rent. Hollywood has become the center of pop music. However, recent advances in music technology have made it possible for people to invest their art in their local communities enabling more geo-agnostic music creation, collaboration and production. This panel will explore specifically how NYC-based music industry professionals are leveraging these advances to bring music making back to NYC. The Anti Social Producers club, based in NYC, is carving out space for up-in-coming industry professionals in the five boroughs. In conversation with the groups founder, organizers and representatives from the city, we will explore why people left, why NYC is more appealing now for musicians than it was ten years ago, and what this might mean for regional music everywhere.
