For the Record is a conversation series where we speak with all manner of music heads — DJs, music journos, indie label captains, record shop owners, listening bar kingpins, et al — about their stories + the music that makes them.

Maarten Walraven

Maarten Walraven operates at the intersection of music, technology, communities, and education. He wears many different hats, from Co-CEO at Symphony.live to co-creator of the experiment in scene building, Wild Awake and from teaching at the University of Utrecht to being co-project lead for the Water & Music academy. If you want to follow his thinking, the best place is MUSIC x, the newsletter he co-edits.
