The loss of David Bowie this week was not only a loss to the music industry, but a loss to the world.
He was the first real multimedia artist, combining, sound, vision, technology and messaging to bring his art to the mass market.
He was an icon, an inspiration, a trendsetter and he’ll be sorely missed.
On the SyncSummit blog, I wrote a tribute to him, his life, what he meant to the world, to me personally and some examples of how his music was used in ads, TV and Film.
I hope I did him justice.
Beyond this week’s tragic news, I wanted to invite everyone who’s in NYC to consider joining me (for free) on Thursday, January 14th at the National Arts Club for a chat with LAVA Records CEO Jason Flom and networking receiption.
In his career, Jason’s been in charge of Capitol Records and Atlantic Records – a guy worth listening to if you do anything in music – and they’ll be a great crowd there for networking – not to mention that the Arts Club is an awesome venue.
If you want to attend, just reply to this email with your name, title and company, along with how many people you want to bring and I’ll make sure your name is on the list.
Finally, if you wish to attend one of our 2016 SyncSummits, you can save at least $200 on standard registration rates if you register by midnight, Friday, January 15th.
