Event description

Description

As part of the SMIA's innovation-led development programme, designed to help nurture business talent and build infrastructure in Scotland's music industry, and in association with 57 Degrees North, we will be hosting this free entry How To Start and Run an Independent Record Label workshop at the Music Hall in Aberdeen (Tutti Studio), taking place on Friday 20th September from 2pm - 5pm.


About the Workshop

Michael Kasparis started Night School Records while living in London in 2011. Now based in Glasgow, Night School is currently working on its 75th release and has worldwide distribution and a loyal following. Kasparis also performs in several music projects and manages the online operations for Glasgow record store Monorail Music.

This workshop will feature most aspects of starting and running your own record label from scratch. This will touch on elements like A&R, accounting, promotion and mostly balancing the personal and professional aspects of running an independent record label. The workshop will seek to use Night School as an example of what to do (and sometimes what not to do) in creating your own space to enthuse about the music you're passionate about. With co-operative aspects and a group task, it will aim to offer some insight into the day to day aspects of running a label and the fulfilling nature of working on long term projects and careers.

We look forward to seeing you there!
