Kickstarter approached me recently asking if I would be interested and willing to be on a Music Discussion Panel at SXSW (South By Southwest) 2015 this upcoming March in Austin, TX. This is very much the story of music communities coming together to make great things. They'll be using the CAT023 project as a highlighted example of how fans and artists can come together and use Kickstarter in unique and exciting ways, beyond the traditional expectation of musicians using the site to fund new album recordings. Joining me on panel, if it is selected, will be fellow Kickstarter creators and musicians, Seth Olinsky and DJ QBert. Part of getting the panel to be chosen and included in SXSW is community voting - so, if you'd like to support the idea, go over and register and vote on SXSW: http://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/33675 If you are not already registered, you can do so here: https://auth.sxsw.com/users/sign_up We won't know if the panel is selected to be presented at SXSW until this Fall after voting closes. Here's the breakdown on how panels get selected from SXSW's site: "Voting from the public accounts for about 30% of the decision-making process for SXSW panel programming. Also important in this decision-making process are the SXSW Advisory Boards (40%) and the input of the SXSW staff (30%)." Voting lasts until September 5th at Midnight CST!
