TORONTO: Toronto’s finest beat-making duo, WondaGurl and Rich Kidd are announced as industry panelists for IMSTA FESTA Toronto on Saturday, September 6th, 2014. Hosted by The International Music Software Trade Association (IMSTA) and in partnership with the Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), the annual celebration of music technology event will take place at the Ryerson’s Rogers Communications Centre.
Providing an environment where top Musical Instrument Technology companies can interact with music makers face-to-face, IMSTA presents five educational and interactive panels featuring music industry experts. As part of the IMSTA FESTA Professional Panel Series, WondaGurl and Rich Kidd will inspire, inform and entertain those attending with a bird’s eye view of the art of live beat making. “Cooking Beats” will demonstrate step-by-step how to construct professional beats from start to finish.
With the instant popularity of WondaGurl’s instrumental for Jay-Z’s song Crown, the 17 year-old Brampton producer has collaborated with hip-hop artists such as Travis Scott, Ryan Leslie and Rich Kidd. As a hip-hop artist, record producer and film/video director, Rich Kidd is known for the quality and depth he brings into his production. He was nominated for a Juno Award in 2012 for his debut album The Closers.
With more special high profile panelists to come, the IMSTA FESTA Professional Panel Series will provide tips and tricks on developing your business, self-promotion, as well as information about publishing and licensing within the music industry.
IMSTA FESTA Toronto will educate music software and hardware users on the value of purchasing the products they use rather than using pirated versions of products. The event helps promote their important message to ‘Buy the software you use.’
