Welcome to episode #7 of HARMAN’s weekly podcast, Audio Matters, dedicated to all things audio. Every Thursday, Audio Matters brings together a diverse group of audio experts who join host Oisin Lunny to present fun, relevant, entertaining information on a variety of music and audio-related topics for listeners everywhere.

This week, we’ve organized a special episode to celebrate International Make Music Day, which is held every year on June 21. Joining the discussion are two of the leaders behind Make Music Day, Aaron Friedman, President of the Make Music Allianceand Dr. Lee Whitmore, Executive Director for the GRAMMY® Music Education Coalition. 

What exactly is Make Music Day, and where did it come from? How did it begin? In what ways will social distancing measures affect this year’s festivities? How is the GRAMMY® Music Education Coalition improving access to music for young and disadvantaged people? How is HARMAN inspiring young people through contemporary music education? Who are the musicians contributing to Make Music Day this year, and how can you get involved?

We’ll provide answers to all of these questions and moreover reveal exclusive insights from our latest study on the Power of Music and how it benefits people’s lives. Available below and on Podigee and all major podcast platforms including Apple PodcastsiHeartRadioSpotify, TuneIn and Deezer.

Also be sure to check out the specially curated playlist for this episode here on TIDAL.

We wish you happy listening and a wonderful Make Music Day. Please join us again next week for episode #8 when we’ll talk to those people who unleash the raw power of Audio Mega Rigs including audio legend Bill Hanley who designed the audio system for Woodstock.
