What the Music Business Can Learn From the Gaming and Gambling Industries

What the Music Business Can Learn From the Gaming and Gambling Industries | What's happening on the Digital Music Industry | Scoop.it

"When it comes making money, the music industry – from labels, to artists, managers, promoters and venues – is stuck in the past. While the industry has embraced digital technology for production and distribution, almost everyone still insists on selling albums and songs. And while the industry continues to plod forward with its model of selling music "products," fans have moved on. They want music for free, but are willing to pay for music 'experiences.'"

Webgrrl's curator insight, February 5, 2013 4:14 AM

I am a Minnow! ~ First, artists and labels should get comfortable with the fact that some people aren't likely to pay for music, instead relying on radio, YouTube, downloads from friends, etc. But these 'customers' (minnows) are important, because without them, you cannot attract dolphins or whales. Their sheer number means they can support an artist in an important, non-monetary way: influence.

Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve"

Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve" | What's happening on the Digital Music Industry | Scoop.it

Meanwhile on Spotify’s app platform comes the launch of David Guetta’s ‘PLAY GUETTA’ app. Back when Spotify launched artist apps back in June I said that they were a great start on the rod to relevance for streaming music services and music discovery but that there was a long distance to go (which was a polite way of saying that the first wave of apps weren’t very good). The David Guetta app is a different kettle of fish altogether. Whereas the first wave of apps had an air of unfulfilled promised ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is a rich, immersive and – crucially – massively social app. As a testament to the importance of Spotify’s app ecosystem, ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is built using the Soundrop SDK, itself a Spotify app.

Behind the tech that makes vinyl so special

Behind the tech that makes vinyl so special | What's happening on the Digital Music Industry | Scoop.it

Our collective enjoyment of music is intrinsically tied to place, memory and personal experience; any debate regarding favoured format is therefore likely to elicit a passionate response. First and foremost, it’s a deeply human topic – be it a pile of personalised mix tapes from old friends, a treasured stack of original reggae 12”s or even a lovingly curated iTunes party playlist – most music lovers have significant memories attached to their collections and, by proxy, their favoured listening medium.

Is Apple Preparing To Offer High-Resolution Music? - hypebot | What's happening on the Digital Music Industry | Scoop.it

We’ve heard rumors that Apple would start selling high-resolution music — as in “better than CD quality” — for years, but so far, “lossless” has been as good as it gets, and the only way to get it in iTunes is to rip your own CDs. Evolver.fm has received word from legendary sound engineer Tony Faulkner that Apple is accepting high-resolution music files for iTunes, even if it is not selling them (yet?).

Digital Music News - One Little Problem With the Whole 'Streaming Saved Sweden' Thing... | What's happening on the Digital Music Industry | Scoop.it

If streaming saved Sweden from a precipitous sales oblivion, why isn't the same thing happening in other countries?  Here's one reason: streaming just isn't as big or important in other countries, and is less a percentage of broader digital consumption.

Pierre Priot's curator insight, February 7, 2013 4:45 AM

If streaming is eating the download in Sweden + France, it fails to do so in bigger markets, leaving room for future US/worldwide players (such as iTunes Match).
