The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music and the Department of Performance studies at NYU’s Tisch School of Arts are proud producers of the 2013 EMP Pop Music Conference. This year’s conference in New York City will draw together leading music scholars, journalists and industry professionals, under the theme of “After the Deluge,” will focus on a wide range of issues pertaining to the region’s musical landscape. The 2-day conference will feature multimedia keynote presentations by legendary producer Joe Boyd and a live-streamed discussion with singer/composer/online entrepreneur Amanda Palmer, and panel topics include: urban musical history and critical inflection points; how music discovery is affected by “one-click” digital downloads; and music as an outgrowth of environmental catastrophe, particularly in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.
