Promoting your music online: opinions from Microsoft, Pandora, Melodeo, and Chris Pirillo

Music Tech Summit - 33 - Bill Valenti, Chris Pirillo, Jessica Stoner, Christina CalioChris Pirillo (second from left in the photo) was one of the panelists at November 11's Music Tech Summit in Seattle (where I also recorded J Allard and Thomas Dolby).

His session with Christina Calio of Microsoft's Zune project, Jessica Stoner of Pandora, and Bill Valenti of Melodeo was particularly useful for IHR listeners: they talked about how to promote and distribute your music in the new online environment. Chris, not being one who was selling anything, had some nice contrarian points to make, and he has posted my audio on his Chris Pirillo Show podcast—over at Inside Home Recording, we link to his copy of my recording, which also includes some of his personal announcements at the beginning. The episode is about 1 hour 10 minutes long.

Here's a direct link to the MP3 file (about 32 MB). My apologies for the sound quality—after moving venues suddenly because of a gas leak, I wasn't able to get my iPod mic into a very good position. But things are still largely intelligible. Enjoy.
