Finding the Best API for Your Music App
Creating the backend architecture for a new music app can be daunting, with myriad legal issues, financial concerns, and time-management challenges to address. Many sites are being forced to enter into complicated negotiations with major record labels and publishers to avoid litigation, while others have shut down when these issues became too much to handle. However, by employing APIs, startups can quickly and legally add full music catalogs, online radio, song suggestions, tour dates, bios, photos, lyrics, and more, leaving them time to focus on what really matters: innovation. Explore the top APIs currently available and show young companies how to sort through them.

Blurring the Line Between Performance and Participation: Making Interactive Tech More Expressive
The last decade has seen an explosion in the size and complexity of audiovisual experiences and interactive art. At festivals, as well as on stages around the world, lighting has been taken to new heights and produced mind-blowing experiences for crowds. However, these experiences have still all tended to be monolithic and produced, using pre-rendered, rather than live-generated content.
What if concerts could not just leave one awe-struck but also connect people in new ways? What if lighting were an instrument as rich and diverse as an organ or piano? These are the types of questions that drive our artistic and technological explorations at Symmetry Labs.

Wearables Schmerables: What it Means for Music
The wearable device trend has many implications for music - beyond health monitors, there are 3G and 4g connected headphones, motion controlled, connected wristbands, sports training devices with programmed music.
Will these devices spur new ways of consuming music? The form factors will drive some of the behavior: many are single use devices for a specific purpose, and they are often minimalistic and small - so have little to no control mechanism or search capabilities.
With limited to no storage in wearable devices, are niche streaming and highly curated channels more likely than accessing your entire collection?
Learn from experts how music will evolve with the wearable device evolution.

Underground Railroad of Artist Revenue
We have talked about lagging physical sales, (downswinging) digital sales, pathetic streaming payouts, juicy live concert sales (if you’re big enough to get them), house concerts, merch, and beyond. But now, new revenue streams are emerging that enable artists to make money the way the rest of the internet makes money – through leveraging audience and influence.

The Celebrity Economy in Music feat Paul Krugman, Win & Will Butler, & More
How will artists make money in ten years? Twenty-five years? In a forward-looking predictive piece in 1996, The New York Times columnist Paul Krugman wrote about “the celebrity economy,” in which “creations must make money indirectly by promoting sales of something else.” Today, artists are increasingly turning to sponsorships and ad placement for funding, and with a new generation rising to fame on YouTube and Vine rather than through record labels, traditional revenue streams will only become less valuable. Hear how industry professionals are navigating this changing landscape, what they predict lies ahead, and what they believe will be discussed at SXSW 2040.

The Un-Distortion of Sound - What's Next featuring ODESZA
Internet radio is now the third most popular way that people discover new music and nearly 70% of smartphone users listen to music on their phones. While streaming and compressed music gives us the convenience and mobility to have millions of songs at our fingertips, technology (for better or worse) has changed our musical experience and we have sold out quality. With compressed music, we’re losing portions of the original recording. The presentation will address all aspects of audio creation (from the recording studio to the listening experience), how the industry is combating bad sound, and what producers and mainstream consumers can expect in the future.
