Where Genius Grows

This show wrestles with big questions from a dizzying array of perspectives. The resulting picture shows us where genius grows in plain sight. * Main themes include: * "Our Changing World" — Social and technological innovation are rewriting the map of our lives faster than we can keep up. People leading the change help us make sense of this rapid evolution. * "United We Stand" — It's easy to take for granted the fabric that holds society together. People who have insight into the forces that create unity, ranging from the interpersonal to the international, help us to see our own role in weaving this fabric. * "Finding Your Voice" — How we express ourselves fundamentally shapes the way we live our lives. By learning from the multitude of ways that people use their voices, we can find the means to more fully reveal who we are. * "Mastering Your Craft" — We stand in awe of skills that craftspeople have elevated to the level of art. For those engaged in this process, mastery may seem forever out of reach. What can we learn from them?

Josh Friedlander is the head of research at the Recording Industry Association of America. In this interview we discuss shifts that the music industry has undergone in recent decades, including how new talent is identified, how sales have evolved from a strict ownership model to a more flexible model with an emphasis on access, and what jobs exist in music today

This conversation about music serves as a useful starting point to think about the accelerating rate of change in any industry that touches our lives daily in both obvious and imperceptible ways.
