Tower Theatre launching music industry web series Scene Skeleton
Scene Skeleton, an original video series featuring conversations with experienced panelists from across the nation discussing strategies, best practices and other music industry topics, is launching Wednesday.
Created by Chad Whitehead, talent buyer for Tower Theatre, Ponyboy and Patchwork Presents, the series is designed to support local musicians as they navigate the music industry by giving them access to people with decades of experience.
“This is a difficult time for artists as the music industry has come to a complete standstill,” Whitehead said in a statement. “One response has been a greater openness to share resources, ideas and knowledge. Scene Skeleton will leverage this new cultivated openness with conversations valuable to our local artists and their musical pursuits.”
Scene Skeleton is designed as a weekly free web series, presented by Oklahoma Film + Music, according to a news release.
“Our people are our strongest asset and I believe our music industry professionals are some of the most talented, innovative and resilient Oklahomans I know,” said Tava Maloy Sofsky, director of the Oklahoma Film + Music Office, in a statement. “We all must do our part to protect Oklahoma’s music eco-system and we see Scene Skeleton as a valuable resource in critical times like these.”
Each episode begins with a conversation before moving into an artist-submitted question-and-answer session.
Planned topics include how to release an album, how to promote a concert, how to create effective branding and more.
Bands and artists can register at www.towertheatreokc.com to gain free access to the live chats and submit questions. To keep conversations clear and focused, these videos will not be posted on social media.
Scene Skeleton launches at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday with “What Do Agents Do?” featuring Susie Giang, of Ground Control Touring, and Jonathan Knight, of Atomic Music Group.
