TOPIC FOUR: Let Your Music Speak:  Demo Presentations Powered by MTV Base and BET

 

Music is objective, music never lies. There is no face attached to the music but only the sound which draws attention to the listener; that is how music gets judged.

Many unsigned bands and artists record demos in order to obtain a recording contract. However, large record labels usually ignore unsolicited demos that are sent to them by mail; artists generally must be more creative about getting the demos into the hands of the people who make decisions for the record company.

Musicians, producers and composers will be given an opportunity to present their musical works to a panel of music publishers, record labels, and A&R and advertising agents.
