November 14, 2011 at 2:59 PM (PT)
The 2nd Annual INTERNATIONAL SONGWRITING SUMMIT (ISS) will take place on SUNDAY, APRIL 29th 2012 at the W HOTEL in HOLLYWOOD. The ISS is organized in partnership with independent artist discovery and development firm A&R WORLDWIDE, leading independent European publisher AMV-TALPA and U.K.-based independent publisher, PHRASED DIFFERENTLY.
The event will be an international gathering of new and established songwriters/producers, A&R executives, publishers, music supervisors, rights societies and other creative mindsets. The summit will also provide access to exclusive briefs six weeks prior to the event allowing both established writers and unearthed creative talent to create and present the "next big global hit single/s."
Over the course of one day, 150 participants (15 round-tables of 10 people) will liaise on various creative matters including the anatomy of a brief, submitting songs, the role of a publisher and analyzing the process once a song is cut -- the next steps. In addition, the ISS will present various keynotes from world-renowned A&R, publishing, synch and songwriting influencers.
Some of the A&R executives already confirmed to participate include ATLANTIC RECORDS Chairman/CEO CRAIG KALLMAN; MARTIN KIERSZENBAUM, Chairman of CHERRYTREE RECORDS, Pres./A&R, Pop & Rock, INTERSCOPE RECORDS & Pres./Int’l Operations for INTERSCOPE GEFFEN A&M; WARNER BROS. RECORDS Head of A&R JEFF FENSTER; INTERSCOPE RECORDS SVP JEFF SOSNOW; ATLANTIC RECORDS Head of A&R PETE GANBARG; ISLAND/DEF JAM SVP A&R MAX GOUSSE; ELEKTRA RECORDS Co-Pres. MIKE CAREN, and many others to be unveiled in the coming weeks alongside of an impressive list of writers, publishers and other creative mindsets.
"We are delighted to welcome some of the most talented and brightest minds from the song communities to help foster a better global creative and business dialogue in an intimate and focused setting," A&R WORLDWIDE & MUSEXPO Founder SAT BISLA stated. "The quality and boutique nature of A&R WORLDWIDE’s MUSEXPO and the INT’L SONGWRITING SUMMIT will always ensure that those who are serious about fostering more creative and business worldwide interaction can do so at an event like this. We are excited to be working with our creative partners JENS-MARKUS WEGENER, MANAGING DIRECTOR AMV-TALPA (GERMANY) and TOM NEVERMANN A&R from AMV-TALPA (GERMANY) and HITEN BHARADIA, Founder, Phrased Differently (U.K.). We look forward to providing a very meaningful event for all of our participants."
"In the light of music becoming more and more a playground for investors we would like to show that creativity is the core of it all," JENS-MARKUS WEGENER said. "Songwriting is the driving force behind the music business so our job is to explore new sources and to optimize the existing."
"More so today than ever, the song is at the heart of our business, so how writers and publishers create, present and leverage their creative assets is becoming the major defining factor towards success," HITEN BHARADI added.
