36 participants from the Norwegian music industry have been invited to attend the master class with Stargate in New York.

In May, Music Export Norway presents a unique master class with Norwegian production duo Stargate. Stargate, who have had sensational international success with artists like Rihanna, Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Ne-Yo, will put together a varied program that will provide participants with insight into the different components that make up an international career in the music industry, as well as provide tips and advice that is going to make Norwegian companies more prepared to enter one of the world's toughest and most competitive industries.

Stargate will base parts of the program on their own experience and parts on contributions from their partners and contacts at the top level of the U.S. music industry. Among these partners are Rihanna manager Jay Brown, Guy Moot, president of EMI Publishing Europe, Stargate management Tim Blacksmith and Danny D and Antonio "LA" Reid, Def Jam president. The event is supported by the Consulate General New York, New York University/Tish School of the Arts/Clive Davis Department of Recorded Music.
