Innovating Music Podcast
Listen to innovators, change agents, entrepreneurs, creators, and researchers who all are making big leaps, nudging change, creating differently, or watching what is happening from a unique POV. Dr. Gigi Johnson from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music explores with our guests how tech is transforming how we create, collaborate, and create communities around music in a connected age — in our home towns and in communities across the globe.
Hazel Savage and her co-founder Aron Pettersson have built Musiio in Singapore to bring artificial intelligence to the messy large data sets of the music industry. She shares her own past in retail and streaming music in the UK and Australia, then shares how and why they formed Musiio. It already has a unique and distinctive role in tagging mass music data sets. She shares how that is different than generative artificial intelligence and how AI is a broader definition than machine learning and algorithms. She’ll share opportunities across Asia and especially China, and will share thoughts on couple of other leading companies bringing new tech solutions to music.
