Drew and James open the show with a quick chat about the past week of personal activities. James went to some TA training, where he found out about “learning bias”. There is also a mention of the DevOpsDays, which can be watched online in 2 parts (part 1 and part 2). Between the 2 of them, they managed to get to 7 meetups last week, so be sure to listen to the reviews. This special show has 2 guests from SKIO Music, Neal Clark and Omri Amouyal. The interview starts at 0:29:16.
SKIO Music provides tools for artists and record labels to increase commercial opportunities and enable strategic collaboration by removing the legal and administrative bottlenecks. SKIO Music helps musicians and record labels of all sizes. Whether you are a bedroom DJ, or a bigger label looking to commission something special from an artist.
Omri Amouyal is the co-founder and VP of Business Development at SKIO Music. Omri brings his musical background to the team, as he was an event DJ around Vancouver and Victoria over the last few years. His role is managing a lot of the talent and label side of the business. He talks about the task of on-boarding musicians and labels to the platform and guiding them on how to get the best use out of SKIO Music.
Neil Clark is the co-founder and CTO at SKIO Music. If you are interested in some of the technical challenges with the challenges of generating dynamic legal documents, you can’t go wrong with listening to Neal’s experience. He also talks about the plans for doing some machine learning to help generate better results when browsing a particular style of music.
SKIO Music has a remix contest going on right now. The submission period is April 8th to May 6th. Be sure to check out their site for more details.
