Tony Visconti at SXSW 2016
“Man, I need TV when I got SXSW”
Tony Visconti delivered his keynote speech at Austin Convention Center during SXSW in Austin, Texas, yesterday. (Thursday, March 17) Apparently, Tony spent a little while talking about Bowie during the nearly 80-minute address, while also delving into tales of his own musical history, before offering thoughts and visions for the future of the music industry. There have been many online reports with excerpts from his speech, here’s a bit from Billboard:
"It could go this way. All the signs are there," Vinsconti warned. "I think we're living in a time when formulas are being repeated more than they've ever been repeated in the past. There's a great unbalance between trying to get that elusive teenage market to buy all these records being made … with a few notes, with loops. You listen to a pop/rock record today, and it's not a band, but you're actually listening to a computer and vocal that was doctored to however knows how much. Then you have people like Sun Kil Moon that wrench you. It tears your heart out. And my dear friend David Bowie turned me on to that album."
