Innovating Music Podcast
Tech is changing music. 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 Center for Music Innovation 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.
Omid Rahmat came into the music business from the tech and app world in order to solve music creation workflow problems with Joyner Lucas and Dhruv Joshi — and now solves them for more than 350,000 creators through the Tully App. He talks about ways to limit tech and financial overhead costs for entrepreneurial song creators. Omid brings us along on his journey in creating the toolset and how he sees the changing music business in coming to think about digital workflow from the outside.
