◎音樂界資深人士Troy Carter將在今年坎城Midem國際唱片展的主題演講中討論「音樂的未來」。除了是經紀公司Atom Factory的執行長和創始人之外，Troy Carter之前擔任Spotify的全球創作者服務部門主管到去年9月才離開，最近還與UTA經紀公司合作開發電影、電視和劇場計劃；加上職業生涯曾與Lady Gaga、John Legend和其他藝人合作過，相信他在Midem將會有很多關於音樂的未來的討論。
Music industry veteran Troy Carter will discuss the "future of music" during a keynote address at this year's Midem conference in Cannes. In addition to being CEO and founder of management firm Atom Factory, Carter recently linked up with UTA to develop film, TV and theater projects, and until September was Spotify's global head of creator services. Add his career work with Lady Gaga, John Legend and others and Carter will have plenty to talk about regarding music's future at Midem.
"We're proud to welcome such an incredibly forward-thinking spirit as Troy Carter to speak at Midem for the first time," said Midem director, Alexandre Deniot. "He is one of the true leaders of the 'New School' of music execs. We've all been inspired by his achievements and how he continues to innovate in the music, tech and media mix. With his exciting new UTA partnership freshly announced, his keynote will make for a fascinating insight into the future of our industry."
Added Carter, "Midem has become a preeminent platform for the most important discussions in the global music industry. I'm looking forward to discussing the current state of the business as well as the rapidly approaching future."
Midem recently brought in David Hazan as head of North America, spearheading efforts to ensure the region is properly represented at the annual confab. In addition to the traditional mix of panels and keynotes from leaders in music and tech, this year's Midem will also feature its own data-driven Midem Music Awards. The event will take place in Cannes, France, from June 4-7.
