This podcast is an interview with David Courtier-Dutton, creator of SliceThePie.com, an amazing website that enables fans to scout new bands and artists, support them by investing in an album recording and making a financial return on that investment when the album is sold. In other words, the entire process of creating and releasing an album is in the hands of artists and fans: no record company is needed!
David speaks to the class via an interview with our Program Director, Rich Meitin.
As his senior project, MI major Jeremie van der Hagen took on a massive project: to create a full-length concert of his original music at the Alltel Center, the premiere commercial concert venue in the area. Jeremie was in charge of all the technical details, the negotiations with Alltel management, promotional design and publicity, etc., in addition to creating and rehearsing all the music. In this podcast, student Chris Bosman interviews Jeremie about his experience.
Recent graduate Chis Bosman discusses his internship experience with Pitchfork Media.
