Introducing our guests: Achille Forler (Music Curator and The Indian Performing Right Society, Mumbai, India)

In times of the COVID-19 crisis it’s impossible to have an international conference with guests from all around the world in Vienna. Therefore, the 11th Vienna Music Business Research Days on “Emerging Music Markets” will be held as an online conference only. Nevertheless we will have exciting conference guests from Asian as well as Eastern European countries to highlight the specifities of emerging music markets in these regions. Find the program (Central European Summertime) here.

Achille Forler gives a keynote talk on the “Music Market in India” on September 23, 11:15-12:00 (CEST) and will then join the virtual panel discussion on “Emerging Music Markets in Asia” with Weining Hung (LUCfest, Tainan, Taiwan), Bernie Cho (DFSB Kollective, Seoul, South Korea), Philipp Grefer (WISE, Beijing, China).

Achille Forler is the founder and managing director of the Indian-based sound design agency Music Curator and member of the advisory board of the The Indian Performing (& Mechanical) Right Society. He founded Deep Emotions Publishing, India’s first full-service music publishing company in 1995, which was acquired by Universal Music Publishing in 2012. From 2012-2016 he was managing director of Universal Music Publishing, India, but left Universal to establish the sound design agency Music Curator with branches in Thane/India and Lisbon/Portugal.

Four decades of experience in the creative industries – as director of a cultural center, as a public servant (French Ministry of Foreign Affairs), in politics as an elected representative, and finally as an entrepreneur – has given Achille an intimate understanding of the role of creative industries in a country’s economic development; the economic, political and social determinants that underlie creativity; the relationship between economy and culture; the role of the State; the administration of rights in the global circular copyright economy.
