This past weekend was full of New Noise Santa Barbara festivities. The New Noise Music Conference and festival kicked off on Wednesday with a couple of shows, and continued on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Thursday was filled with musical performances at various venues sprinkled around downtown Santa Barbara. Artists such as Tyrone Wells, American Dirt, Naked Walrus, and The City performed at Muddy Waters, SOhO, Whiskey Richards, and Velvet Jones.
Friday was fully packed with interesting panels all about new media and the music industry. This year, Jacob Tell and Mike Wald of Oniracom lead a hands-on workshop about New Media for Traditional Business. Gideon Rubin Local Market Launch and Kyle Ashby of Kaldera Marketing were also panelists at Oniracom’s workshop. During the panel, Oniracom discussed how traditional businesses can use the internet and new media to captivate audiences and develop unique web presences. The audience even received a “digital marketing plan” worksheet to help them organize their own plan for their traditional business.
To keep everyone at New Noise updated, Oniracom also created and designed a live social feed website for New Noise, which is pictured below. The social feed page was used during the conference in order to show which panels were up next and what conversations were occurring via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram.
The awesome New Noise weekend concluded with a block party on Mason St., which featured performances by several local bands such as, Ghost Tiger, Little Owl, Y La Bamba, and Gardens & Villa. The “speaker art” that was placed in front of the block party’s entrance was more than appropriate!
Thanks to The New Noise Music Foundation for providing a fun and exciting weekend of live music and engaging panelists!
