Let’s face it – technology in classical music is here to stay and the possibilities around it are growing every year. This NEXT:Tech session takes a look at four companies that have created businesses around solving specific problems in the classical music business with technology.
LOLA has a concrete technical solution to enable successful real-time rehearsal between musicians across distances; Gigle has launched a marketplace for C2C events managing the long-tail of agent work; the Australian Discovery Orchestra is spreading the word on how to create 3D environments for VR; and Idagio, ‘the Spotify of classical music’, makes searching for classical music a dream.
