Rachael Cain, co-founder of Trax Records label, came to Midem with a special goal in mind: to come up with a solution for people to create their own, new songs from the EP that Trax Records is releasing. She found the perfect partner at Midem: Russell Sheffield, CEO of Trackd, an innovative app that lets you record music straight on the iPhone, as well as collaborate with other musicians. “Midem is the world’s best collaboration, in real-time and space! ” Russell Sheffield, CEO, Trackd.
The Midem Artist Accelerator (MAA) is a new programme, launched in partnership with Pepsi & Deezer, designed to fast-track budding musical talent into the global spotlight.
The call for entries is now closed for the 2015 edition. 45 artistic projects have been selected for the 2nd round. An elite Artistic Committee, made up of key international players of the music ecosystem, will now select 12 artists/bands out of these 45 projects submitted by managers, agents, labels, publishers and artists themselves.
MAA is a unique opportunity to play live on the Midem main stage and to receive a selection of curated networking, learning & coaching sessions with a focus on monetisation and export best practices.
Making a difference in today’s musical landscape starts at the Midem Artist Accelerator.
