John Buckman To Present 132nd AES Convention Keynote Address

Innovative Online Label Founder To Discuss Successful Indie Music Models

BUDAPEST: John Buckman, founder of several online music businesses including Berkeley, CA-based Magnatune, has been selected as Keynote speaker for the 132nd AES Convention. The event will be held April 26-29, at the Novotel Budapest Congress & World Trade Center. Currently serving as Chairman of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Buckman is an entrepreneur inspired by the causes of Internet freedom and free culture. He founded the online record label Magnatune in 2003 as a reaction to his experiences with the music industry. Magnatune strives to be fair both to recording artists and consumers alike and is considered a solid example of a successful “sharing economy” based business model.

Entitled “Small And Beautiful: Models for Successful Independent Music Businesses,” Buckman’s Keynote will address his experience in developing a successful online music business. Buckman’s egalitarian business practices are distinguished by non-exclusive agreements with musicians. His pioneering Fair Trade Music Philosophy is based on equally shared profits with his artists, and allowing them to retain full rights to their own music. Since founding Magnatune, Buckman has signed more than 250 recording artists across multiple genres including Classical, Electronica, World, Alt Rock, Jazz and Hard Rock. He is about to launch iLicenseMusic.com. In addition to such other internet music companies as MoodMixes.com (background music for restaurants) and ToneGnome.com (audio engineering services over the Internet), he has also had a successful career as an audio engineer.

Profiled by Inc. Magazine, The Economist, Forbes, and other major publications for his innovative approach to online music distribution, Buckman is also Founder and CEO of BookMooch, an innovative community for sharing over 1 million books each year in 91 countries via the Internet.

Highlighted by a diverse program of Papers, Workshops, Tutorials, Recording, Hearing, Broadcast, Game Audio, Student, Career, and Special Events, the 132nd AES Convention will epitomize the Audio Engineering Society mandate of providing a platform for listening, learning and connecting.
