Have a track that has been rocking your home studio and want to take the next step with it? Manitoba Music, MEMETIC, and John Norman have joined forced to bring a new addition to the 2015 MEME Festival… Feedback Loop. The workshop and listening session gives producers the opportunity to have their tracks critiqued by a panel of four industry professionals. Participating tracks will be played and discussed from a production standpoint, and participants will receive constructive feedback from the panel offering their perspective. Participants will listen to new music alongside the experts, learn what they listen for when hearing new demos, and be part of the discussion about what makes a strong first impression and why. This is a chance for artists to meet and discuss their work with fellow producers, while getting personal feedback from a distinguished panel from both a craft and business point of view.

Electronic and hip hop producers of all levels are welcome. It is not necessary to bring a song to attend and hear what the panelists have to say.

Tracks submissions for Feedback Loop can be sent via email to MP3s, Soundcloud links (private or public), or direct downloads will be accepted.
