Participants in the Malibu Cultural Arts Commission’s first-ever Salon Series event had a chance to learn how hip-hop musician and music producer Michael — “Mike D” — Diamond creates music on Wednesday, Aug. 20.
Two dozen audience members gathered at a private recording studio for an informal discussion of the art and business of music. The conversation ranged from the creative process, to electronic technology, intellectual property rights and even the evolution of high definition audio formats.
