Welcome to episode #12 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 topics for listeners everywhere.

In the final episode of Season One, we discuss the cultural heartbeat of a city and explore the importance of small independent performance venues for music, performing arts  and artists and how a local creative scene is a strategic factor to deliver economic, social and cultural growth in communities – topics that are especially close to our heart at HARMAN.

Together with our guests Rev. Moose, Executive Director/Co-Founder of NIVA (National Independent Venue Association) and Managing Partner/Co-Founder at Marauder, and Shain Shapiro, Founder & Group CEO at Sound Diplomacy, Oisin Lunny will examine the current state of music in cities, how it can regenerate post COVID-19, and what the future will hold.

The episode is available to listen below as well as on Podigee and all major podcast platforms including Apple Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, TuneIn, and Deezer.
