In association with Harvard University’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society, the primary goal for the Rethink Music Conference is to bring music stakeholders together to discuss future possible business models, examine copyright in the digital era, and also analyze technological innovations music and distribution.

Rethink Music 2012 offers conference goers a broadened focus on media convergence, brands, and technology. Specific track sessions will address innovation, devices and mobility, direct-to-fan business, engagement, and discovering audiences and artists. This is what really separates Rethink from other conferences/conventions of the same manner.

Before the actual conference takes place, there will be a Rethink Music Impact Weekend. Rethink Music Impact Weekend will be a series of musical events, a developer’s conference, and the Music Deconstruction Experience leading into the Rethink Music 2012 Conference.

“Berklee is tremendously excited to present the second annual Rethink Music conference in conjunction with midem and to continue its important music industry research initiative with Harvard. We continue to work to search for future solutions, empowering musicians along the way, through creative presentations and thought-provoking dialogue,” says Allen Bargfrede, Executive Director of Rethink Music for Berklee College of Music and Program Director, Berklee Valencia.
