U of S, Indie Ink Publishing, local artist unveil "New Rockstar Philosophy" app

Media are invited to a sneak peek at The New Rockstar Philosophy app before its official unveiling June 12 at the MoSo 2014 conference. The app is based on a book of the same name by Matt Voyno and Roshan Hoover, described as "a guerrilla blueprint for digitally conscious artists, festival organizers, band managers, musicians, digital devotees." The app breaks "new ground for adult non-fiction," according to Suzanne Paschall, CEO of local publisher Indie Ink and leader of the project, which was funded by Mitacs.

A demo of The New Rockstar Philosophy app will be featured. Team members from Indie Ink and the U of S Department of Computer Sciences, including app developer Flavio Ishii, will be available for interviews, as will Chris Bowman of Mitacs. The book's authors, as well Saskatoon street artist Cody Powell, who was commissioned to produce a series of original works for the app, will also be on hand.
