ADE Health looks at the true nature of talent

  • ADE Health looks at the true nature of talent

This year ADE Health goes deep into what makes musicians tick, as well as what makes them hide in their hotel room, how studios can become an accidental sanctuary it’s hard to break out of, and what agents, labels and managers can do to help.

After recent announcements about music producer David Wrench and Amazon CTO Dr. Werner Vogels, we're back in order to reveal this year's focus within the ADE Health program. According to an estimate by YourGreenRoom.org founder Clare Scivier, anything up to 70% of electronic musicians could be on either the Aspergers or Autism spectrum, with both conditions featuring a heightened sensitivity and love of detail that plays a positive role in that person’s creative life. But its impact on their time outside the studio bubble can be quite the opposite, which is why it is often said of a musician that they are ‘vague’ and ‘distant’ in social situations.

This year’s ADE Health, under the title Talent - A Blessing Or A Curse?, will feature a range of experts and artists focusing on the realities of being creative, how best to manage talent in the hothouse environment that is our live music scene, alongside offering advice and tips to musicians about what to do in order to get the best from themselves and their entourage. Starting with On The Spectrum, ADE Health will move through how to successfully negotiate social situations you don’t really want to be part of (The Social Whirl), and look at the role played by the support groups that form around talented people (Glamour & Grit).

As Clare Scivier says, it isn’t necessarily a problem: “None of this need prevent Aspergers & Autistic people from having successful careers in music, but a greater awareness and education of teams in how to handle their diary planning, expectations, environments etc is essential.” In the Peer Pressure segment, ADE Health will be looking at the pressure both male and female DJs are under to play up to gender stereotypes, and how they sometimes unwittingly force each other to play the image game. The final session (The Attention Economy) will be examining the value of digital detox sessions and how to really get away from the noise and distraction of our modern world.
