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.
Roman Rappak is forging ahead on two parallel tracks — creating recorded music for traditional channels and creating new systems to create mixed reality experience with the same music in live environments. Enjoy this episode where he talks about what drives him on these parallel and interwoven journeys with his new band, Miro Shot, and how they are building their own systems and processes to create a new type of live/virtual engagement for audiences.
