|ATMM Organizers, Bilkent Univerisity|
I opened the conference with a keynote presentation called "The Music Business Is Not Dying" which looks at the current state of the music business and the 3 keys of how the student of today can prepare for a place in it. The conference (the very first of its kind at the university) then went on to provide a number of fascinating presentations, panels and papers on everything from real time improvisation via a computer environment to soundscapes triggered by EEG waves to the three technologies that have radically altered music, and many more that can be mentioned here. I enjoyed each and every one and congratulate their presenters.

Although I'm severely jet-lagged thanks to the 30 hour trip home (complete with 5 security checks and two bag searches), I'm coherent enough to know that this was clearly one of the best experiences I've ever had. Every college and university treats me well when I speak, but Bilkent went above and beyond any expectations I had beforehand.
|Modern Production Techniques Presentation|
I have a number of presentations of "Social Media For Musicians and Engineers" coming up at a number of schools. If you'd like me to speak at your school, college or university on any of the above subjects, or provide a master class or workshop, feel free to contact me.
