Founder · April 30, 2015
Trond Tornes has, since he was signed to Polygram as a music artist in the early 90s, been working in the music industry, first as a musician, then as a booker, promoter and manager. Also, since the late 90s, working with startups and content, Trond started working with digital distribution since 2003. With the now biggest Nordic digital indie music distributor Phonofile, Trond has been working internationally as their marketing manager through the last years and there contributed to the company’s steady growth.
The Nordic digital music market is the most advanced market of its kind in the world, with many industry eyes looking to the Nordics for first hand digital know how. For Phonofile and Trond, this has been a succesful experience, often shared by Trond in numerous music industry panels or through lectures at showcase music festivals and in giving classes at the NYU. Within Mashup Norway, Trond is seeing the opportunity to contribute to more initiatives within the tech and creative industries field getting on the path to industrial growth.
