With Amazon having finally released their long awaited stand-alone streaming service, the $7.99 sticker price seems to be bucking an industry trend by offering consumers unlimited streaming for less, but the figure is deceptive. _______________________ Guest Post by Bobby Owsinski on Music 3.0 Amazon has finally launched it’s lon
L'arrivée sur le marché de Spotify et Deezer ne s'est pas faite en un jour. Mais désormais, quoi qu'on en pense, le streaming est devenu un mode de consommation de la musique. Les offres ne cessent de se multiplier et de tenter de se différencier.
Il y a quelques mois nous vous avions parlé de l’ascension irresistible de Musical.ly, l’Apps de Lip-syncing (mais pas que…) dans la part de pouce des ados. A l’époque, c'était en mai, la société de Luyu Yang et d’Alex Zhu revendiquait 60 millions d’utilisateurs. Aujourd’hui Musical.ly vient de franchir la barre des 120 millions d’utilisateurs ou Musers.
Bienvenue dans le futur. En moins d'un mois, deux titres composés par une intelligence artificielle ont dépassé les 1,5 millions de vues sur le Net. L'IA musicale Flow Machines de Sony sera-t-elle la première IA-star?
Techstars, a 10-year-old Boulder, Colo., company that runs business accelerators across the country, is starting to accept applications this week for its first music-industry focused program, launching in February.
The company is in contract negotiations with the three biggest labels, Universal Music, Sony, and Warner Music Group. They take issue with Spotify’s free, ad-supported tier, which doesn’t compensate them as richly as its paid-subscription one that has 40 million users. But Spotify needs all the users it can get, because it hopes to go public soon. The more it can mint its own stars, the less it needs the labels’ glittering rosters. “This is very strategic,” says Mike Doernberg, chief executive of ReverbNation, an online music company that works with emerging artists. “The best thing Spotify can do is popularize more artists so it becomes the gatekeeper of consumption.” Ogle is giving Spotify more weapons to fight off not just Apple but Pandora and Amazon.com, which are expected to start rival services in the coming months. Ogle doesn’t sound worried. He’s noticed that Discover Weekly users often address the service on Twitter as if it’s a friend who knows them intimately. They’re even forgiving when Spotify’s algorithm misfires. Ogle could be talking about Amber Reyes, who recently tweeted: “Nice @spotify you made up for the horrible discover weekly playlist last week. I love every single song on this weeks. #epic #nice save.”
