Helping artists acheive the most they can.


Douglass Hoppe - CEO Hyper Media LLC - Entrepreneur and consultant with major label experience. Orchestra conductor and classical / jazz performer who also composes. Extensive network of contacts in the music and entertainment industries both in North America and worldwide.

I am a serial entrepreneur and consultant who created the first and largest music portal in Central and Eastern Europe. I also conceived of and led the initial implementation and evangelism for Sony's www.myplay.com video portal. I am a former (still capable, but largely changed careers) orchestra conductor and classical / jazz performer who also composes. I have an extensive network of contacts in the music and entertainment industries both in North America and worldwide. I have made numerous recordings (especially live recordings (all genres) and field recordings (world music)) which I streamed on the internet and also offered for download. My company XenoMusic's best of sampler was listed among the top ten albums of the year (2001) by the San Francisco Chronicle.

I'm here t critique your music.
