TORRANCE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Not content with merely funding, producing, and distributing some of the most compelling musical and artistic content of recent note, Scion A/V has extended its participation in the tumultuous recording industry by producing a series of videos entitled the Scion A/V Music(less) Music Conference that lends an insider perspective to the goings-on of the entertainment industry.
Over the course of the videos, viewers are exposed to the many creative and business-oriented aspects of the industry with notable artists such as Chromeo's P-Thugg, Detroit techno legend Juan Atkins, and hip-hop veterans Prince Paul and the RZA discussing the advantages and pitfalls of the music industry. Label heads such as A-Trak and Suroosh Alvi provide counterpoints and strategies for navigating the wild west of artistic promotion, while masters of the sonic arts such as Drop The Lime, Mark Reveley, and Colin Marston give viewers an up close and personal look at their creative spaces. All in all, the segments provide a broad cross-section of the business and portray the digital music industry an optimistic light.
