It’s almost been a month, but we still can’t get over how exciting the Wavelengths Pre-conference was. The two-day event, which rps co-produced for the first time with globalFEST, took place right before the APAP conference in New York. Artists, agents, managers, and arts presenters gathered to listen to speakers share their advice and experience in the music industry.
We decided to bask in the afterglow (and gather some good advice and food for thought) via #wavelengths on Twitter.
@NYUDArtsCenter tweeted out, “’I don’t deal with the institutions. I deal with the individuals inside the institutions,’ Toshi Reagon.” Reagon also reminded all of us to “be willing to step across all of the BS.. Find your people,” which was tweeted out by @globalFest_NYC.
@Meeradugal enjoyed Amir ElSaffar’s quote about connection. “It’s about connection on a human level. It’s the only reason we do this – to keep the humanity in us alive.”
Lev ‘Liova’ Zhurbin left @MichelaMusolino tweeting about the things he was mentioning. “Look away from the screen,” and “Never say ‘no.’ Keep in touch; follow up.”
Jacob Edgar ending our #wavelengths on a good note with his quote, tweeted by @Globalfest_NYC, “Music is not just about the sound. It’s about the air, the setting, the noises around the music.”
@NYUADArtsCenter “Everybody on stage is a part of a community…Producing means not just producting me. @biglovely1 on artists empowerment #APAPNYC #wavelengths.”
Meeradugal: “We are the mystical warriors for peace! @biglovely1 at #wavelengths”
