How Seagate is freely “sharing” its appreciation for music

Isn’t it amazing what a big role technology now plays in the creative arts?

Specifically with music. Whether it’s recording, distribution or listening on your mobile device, it’s all tied to recent technology developments over the past 10 years.

At the CMJ Music Marathon and Film Festival this week, Seagate partnered with The Windish Agency – a talent agency that represents emerging music artists – at their annual industry mixer party. The CMJ Music Marathon is the largest and longest-running music industry event of its kind and is curated by CMJ (College Music Journal), who prides themselves on “connecting music fans and music industry professionals with the best in new music through interactive media, live events and print.”

Besides getting artists and industry together at the mixer, Seagate and The Windish Agency have put together a CMJ Mixtape showcasing The Windish Agency artists performing during the festival – just for you new-music fans, provided via SoundCloud to download and share at no charge! The Seagate/Windish Mixtape was available through October and November 2011, so we hope you got your fill! Please stay tuned for more musical sharing and stories in the near future.

Over the past year, Seagate has invested a lot of its time and energy to work with artists of all sorts. From the launch of the Creative Professionals Program, to annual participation at events like SXSW, Seagate’s committed to the success of all artists: photographers, filmmakers, musicians, and designers. The CMJ Music Marathon was just the latest effort.  Next up is at the SXSW music festival in March 2012! Enjoy, discover and be inspired. Don’t forget to follow Seagate on Facebook and Twitter for more music updates and events.
