Midem, the music conference, is going on in France as I write. Their website offers streaming, video and live blogs of the daily events. If you have a passion for the the music business or a passing interest, take a look and watch a few panels.
There is a real lack of female presence on these panels. The recorded music industry has always been a boys club, with very few women able to crack into the top echelon. That seemed to be changing with powerful female managers and female artists taking their careers into their own hands. Is there a dearth of females in the tech area of music? Most of the panels are tech driven. Not all consumers are male, not all points of view should be male. Would love to know what the women attending Midem think.
