The program track will feature some of the top music supervisors in the field today, along with their creative partners and collaborators, who will present case studies and break downs of projects they’ve worked on.
Programming for the sessions was headed by GMS co-founder Jonathan McHugh, who says: “Our NYC steering committee has done another excellent job on crafting a great day of programming. It’s a mixed blessing that our one day event is virtual again this year. The good news is that now people from all over the world can attend and learn from some great GMS music supervisors/producers and some of the creative partners and brands that they collaborate with.”
Mondo is an incubator confab for the music and tech industries that includes showcases of emerging artists from around the world. Mondo.NYC is scheduled for Oct. 12 to 15 both virtually and in person at Drom. Check the Mondo.NYC site for a full schedule. Below are the case studies planned:
