Berklee Conference To Explore Music Industry’s Future

BOSTON — Some big names in music, including Lexington native Amanda Palmer, will be in Boston Monday night — but not for a show.

Palmer, her husband and collaborator Neil Gaiman, pianist Ben Folds and Damian Kulash of the band OK Go are here for the Rethink Music Conference, put on by the Berklee College of Music.

The hope is to bring together musicians, entrepreneurs, legal experts and others to figure out how the industry can adapt to a world in which many people just won’t pay for music.

We spoke about the conference with Christopher Bavitz, assistant director of Harvard Law School’s Cyberlaw Clinic, and Allen Bargfrede, a professor of music business at Berklee.
