NYC Media Lab and the ASCAP Lab present:
Music in the Metaverse: 4 Startups Shaping Our New (Extended) Reality
Join us as we explore new ways to create and experience music in the metaverse. On August 10th at 3pm ET, NYC Media Lab will team up with the ASCAP Lab for a virtual broadcast of the 2022 Music in the Metaverse Challenge Demo Day as part of the ASCAP Experience.
In June, NYCML and the ASCAP Lab awarded grants to four startup teams — Popins, OffBeat, SolTunes, and MetaCities — who set out to develop and expand upon their emerging technologies designed to help shape the future of music, community, and interaction. Throughout the 12-week challenge, and with mentorship and guidance from NYCML and the ASCAP Lab, the four startup teams explored new ways we can 1) create and experience music, 2) express digital identity through music, and 3) connect music creators and fans in the metaverse.
The results have been nothing short of impressive, and we’re thrilled to share the free virtual broadcast with our community of tech and media enthusiasts. RSVP for the virtual broadcast of the 2022 Music in the Metaverse Challenge Demo Day. Once registered, you will receive the Demo Day broadcast link straight to your inbox, and invitations to upcoming ASCAP Experience programming.
