John Buckmann at AULA 20:19 on Wednesday
Is there a record company that is not evil? This is a question presented by Magnatune founder John Buckmann, who will be presenting at the free AULA event next Monday. Then again, creating “a record company that doesn’t screw up artists” is in the mind of nearly every new label founder. Somehow this mindset dissolves when the reality of music business sets in — the business is mostly as profitable and stress-free as gambling.
Buckmann has ran Magnatune for years and seems to be not only doing well, but also shows absolutely no sign of dissolving the do-no-evil mindset, quite the contrary. The date is October 23rd, time is 19 sharp, anyone interested in alternatives for the future of music business should attend.
