To say that GMP is excited about SXSW is a huge understatement. With months and months of constant build up, the planets are finally set to align in the coming week. The panel that GMP is bringing to the festival is entitled “Can Altruism Be The Next Music Business Model?” and consists of four major players in the music industry:
Peter Schwinge is the general manager of New Music Seminar, a destination where artists, music reps, and companies are provided with tools, knowledge, and connections necessary to becoming successful in building up the New Music Business.
Christopher Tyng is the creative director of The Grow Music Project. He has worked in the music industry as a songwriter, producer, and composer writing music for shows such as “The OC“, “Futurama“, and “Suits“. He has worked with a wide variety of successful bands and artists in Los Angeles spanning across a broad array of genres from reggae to electronica to orchestral.
Anina Moore is the Director of Communications with Texas Commission On The Arts, an Austin-based arts agency working to provide resources that reinforce economic development, arts education, and artist sustainability initiatives in Texas and throughout the country.
