Last month, SVII hosted an event focused on the concept of rapid iteration–which is a quick production cycle of something for the sake of quickly adjusting as you see the results of previous cycle. That may seem complicated, but it just means that you figure out how to do something better while you are doing it, and you figure it out rapidly.
Here is one of our presenters, Jason Marsh, demonstrating rapid iteration in the form of musical performance:
With so much improvement occuring rapidly in technology and software many industries are struggling to keep up. The same cannot be said for the music industry, or can it? SVII brings together a panel of five individuals each with their own unique experiences in the worlds of music, invention and technology to discuss the future relationship between technology and music.
* New Venue: Angelica’s Bell Theatre & Bistro, Redwood City
century ago, technology brought recorded music to everyone. Since then, it has put your record collection in your pocket and a recording studio in your home. The internet changes the way music is marketed and disrupts old business models.
But in the next decade, there is a still bigger change coming. The confluence of cloud services and mobile phones and other technologies are enabling new ways to create music, share it, learn and practice, rehearse, compose, collaborate and perform.
We have put together an amazing panel of musicians, inventors and technologists. Their shared backgrounds span music genres from 60’s Rock to avant-garde Jazz to Bluegrass, and technologies from tube amplifiers to mobile devices, cloud services and computer music. (Be sure to check out their fascinating bios below!)
Join us for an interactive discussion of the future of music and the direction of technology for musical expression!
We will explore the role of rapid iteration in music, the arts, software development, medical devices, project management, business operations, collaboration, and more.. Come join us!
Perhaps you woke up this morning to the cacophony of sparrows and blue jays sporting their morning song, felt the cozy weight of that silk-wrapped comforter coaxing you to linger, saw the red LEDs of your digital clock, indicating two hours until that morning meeting (to close the deal of your lifetime!), smelled the scent of bacon sizzling in the kitchen, and finally climbed out of bed, succumbing to the thought of savoring the crispy pork in your mouth, along with a side of over-easy eggs, golden-yolked, and runny to perfection…
Perhaps you created something life-changing today?
SVII and CAST Labs joined forces for an end of the year celebration. The program featured live jazz, opera arias, a tango dance performance, and a dinner-debate. The theme of the evening – art, creativity and innovation, a collaborative exploration.
Here is an excellent blog post by Theral Timpson about the evening.
