Remixing the Fan Experience: A Panel Discussion
Wednesday, November 14, 2012

On Saturday, November 10th I moderated a panel I put together for the third annual RE/Mixed Media Festival called Remixing the Fan Experience. The idea stemmed from the reality that just fifteen years ago being a music fan meant waiting in line at midnight at a record store for your favorite artist’s latest album on its release date, and camping out for concert tickets, but now albums are downloaded at the click of a mouse, and not only can you buy concert tickets online, many shows are live-streamed. This ease of use has resulted in less fandom, and in turn, less sales, and Remixing the Fan Experience covered a number of topics relating to this, including

* The definition of a fan in 2012
* The difference between a “like” and liking an artist
* How Kickstarter affects the artist-fan relationship

I did my best with the audio, although I’m not a pro, so you may have to turn up your speakers. I also think headphones might help the listening experience.

B-Lister Nation
B-Listers are a select group of artists that were featured in my Artist Of The Week series that ran every Monday from April of '06 to April of '11. All of these artists have two things in common; extreme talent, and a flight path far too under the radar for my liking. They took on the title of B-Listers as they embraced being featured by me, Adam B. Check out the AOTW Archives for all the interviews.
