Rock legend and SXSW Music Keynote alumnus Neil Young will return to speak at the SXSW 2014 Music Conference on Tuesday, March 11. This stands to be a landmark year for Young; he is preparing to unveil his audio brainchild, a high-quality music service called Pono.

Neil Young has long been an advocate for studio-quality music in the digital age, and laments the relatively inferior sound quality offered by the current services. Pono, built from the ground-up, is his attempt to remedy this problem, and deliver to the listener the exact, full sounds the artist intends. Young - a Grammy-Award Winner and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee - will certainly go into more detail on Pono and deliver choice lessons from his legendary and storied career at SXSW.

Join us on Tuesday, March 11th at 5:00 pm for this special session as part of our Convergence programming, where Music, Film, and Interactive topics overlap. Convergence sessions are open to all badge types. SXSW is just around the corner, so if you haven't registered yet, do it today!
