Episode 2: The Collaboration Paradox

The Collaboration Paradox starts with the Splice origin story, exploring the ways musicians and producers collaborate in the modern age. We consider the past technical limitations to collaboration solved by Splice and how music distribution formats (vinyl, cassette, CD, and now streaming) have changed the way music is made. We also discuss viewpoints on some glaring questions — is there such a thing as cheating in music? Is technology cheating when it comes to creativity? The episode also dives into the collaboration and creation process on Splice, showcasing a few examples of how a sample can turn into a song.

In this episode, we hear from Aron Magner and Jon Barber of the Disco Biscuits, Steve Martocci of Splice, Cherie Hu, music and tech writer, and Andy Weissman, managing partner at Union Square Ventures.
