  • October 20, 2020 – The Art of Marketing an Album with Maria Schneider & Michael Dudley

    Our second episode features the Frost School’s HMI Artistic Director, multi-GRAMMY®-winner in the classical and jazz genres, and legendary composer and band leader Maria Schneider. Michael Dudley, current DMA student at the Frost Studio Music & Jazz department, has worked closely with Schneider in HMI. “Not only is he a wonderful player,” states Maria; “I’ve also enjoyed experiencing his great gifts as a writer and thought he’d be a fun interviewer— and I was right!” Explore the pioneering marketing of her albums which took the music industry by storm, beating the formidable competition for each of her GRAMMY® Awards.” They delve into the process surrounding her latest double-album release “Data Lords,” which NPR’s Nate Chinen calls, “the most daring work of Schneider's career, which sets the bar imposingly high.”
