The music industry has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. Now, much of the work once done by managers, agents and record company executives is handled by the individual artist. A conference in Lawrence this weekend is aimed at helping independent musicians navigate their way through the new, “do-it yourself” model of making and marketing original music. The MixMaster 2015 conference features opportunities for artists to interact with music business professionals, have their music heard, and get advice and feedback. KPR's Tom Parkinson spoke with local musician and entrepreneur Nick Carswell who organized this weekend’s so-called MXM conference.
That was Nick Carswell, Lawrence-based musician and organizer of the Mix/Master 2015 or MXM Conference and Showcase that starts today and runs through tomorrow night in Lawrence.
