Music Metadata Style Guide

Printz Patrick's insight:

After taking the lead in the important conversation surrounding music metadata, the Music Business Association (Music Biz), formerly NARM and digitalmusic.org, has introduced version 2.0 of its touchstone Music Metadata Style Guide, which provides a set of common naming conventions and data entry standards for companies to use when listing, ingesting, and managing digital music. By following these standards, artists, labels, and digital services can ensure that customers will be able to easily find, stream, share, and buy the tracks or albums they want.

Compiled by Music Biz’s Digital Supply Chain and Operations Work Group, the updated document furthers the mission of the original, adding significant changes to standards for artists, albums, and tracks; providing more robust direction on DDEX standards; and adding Japanese, Chinese, Korean, and Thai to the languages section.

French singles chart now combines sales and streaming 

French singles chart now combines sales and streaming  | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
To the contrary of the UK and the US, Snep and GfK, the institute compiling the charts, have decided to multiply the sales figures (by 150) and add them to streaming data rather than dividing streaming by 150 and adding it to sales”.

This ultimately yields the same final rankings, but Snep is quoted in saying that “it seemed more logical to us to convert the data of the smaller trend to that of the bigger, and not the opposite”.

France has thus just introduced the sales-equivalent-streaming ratio!

Beatport quits music streaming as it suspends sale process

Beatport quits music streaming as it suspends sale process | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Beatport, owned by troubled SFX Entertainment, is quitting the streaming game – and says it’s in no rush to sell.

SFX acquired Beatport for $50m in 2013.

From there, in an attempt to increase revenues and progress its technology, Beatport built a streaming music service, a mobile app, a video livestreaming platform and a dance music news channel.

And today, just as anticipation was building for news of a sale, Beatport made a very different announcement.

“[In] our effort to be so many different things, we lost focus on bringing the best possible service and capabilities to our most loyal customers: the DJ community,” it said in a blog post.

“As such, we have determined to invest in what is most important to our business and our customers, rather than adding yet another choice to a sea of streaming services.

Art Under Threat: Attacks on artistic freedom in 2015

Art Under Threat: Attacks on artistic freedom in 2015 | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Artistic freedom is under extreme pressure in far too many countries. The Freemuse annual report summarises censorship and threats on artistic freedom in 2015 in over 70 countries.

In total, Freemuse registered 469 cases of censorship and attacks on artists and violations of their rights in 2015, making it our worst recorded year yet, nearly doubling the number of cases from 2014 with a 98% increase from the year previous, wherein 237 cases were registered.

While at the UN level there have been positive signs of larger attention being paid to the importance of protecting artistic freedom in 2015, sadly the year was dominated by a 20% increase in registered killings, attacks, abductions, imprisonments and threats, and a staggering 224% increase in acts of censorship.

The Clock Is Ticking on a Spotify IPO

The Clock Is Ticking on a Spotify IPO | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
What seems more likely to me is that Spotify will follow Apple's slowly unfolding tactic of using video content, perhaps even its own exclusive content, as a means of insulating itself from better-financed rivals like Apple and Alphabet. In recent weeks, word has surfaced that Apple is in fact accelerating the pace of its original and exclusive content strategies. The strategy is by no means innovative. It's really an extension of the content strategy we've seen employed with great success at Netflix in streaming video. Alphabet's YouTube has taken steps to secure its own original video content as well. 

One thing that's clear is that content, either video or music, doesn't come cheap in today's day and age

Le chiffre fait image. En 2015, les quelque 540 000 écoutes Spotify de la chanson Paradis City de Jean Leloup lui auront rapporté… un peu moins de 30 $ pour ses droits d’interprète.
 
Autre illustration d’une industrie qui ne tourne pas rond : l’an dernier, la vente de 17 millions de disques vinyles aux États-Unis a rapporté plus que le cumul de « milliards et de milliards » d’écoutes en ligne sur des sites légaux sans abonnement, révélait la Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) la semaine dernière.

What Spotify's Debt Means For Artists And Labels 

What Spotify's Debt Means For Artists And Labels  | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
The main reason for existing stockholders (like the major labels and Merlin in Spotify’s case) to avoid a down round is to protect the preferences that the prior investors have built into their stock ownership.  Those preferences can require the company to issue more shares to protect the percentage ownership of the insiders and key executives, for example, and that can lead to washout financings and recapitalizations to incentivize investors in the down round (who often are not, as one might say, “babies”).

Down rounds are also one indicator that a bubble is about to burst but that investors have not yet capitulated.  (Down rounds are a precursor to failed capital calls, which are the real sign of a bubble bursting.)  Down rounds were very common in the dot bomb bubble burst.

Kobalt's AMRA increases YouTube publishing payouts by 34% in EU

Kobalt's AMRA increases YouTube publishing payouts by 34% in EU | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
Until AMRA took over last year, Kobalt’s collection responsibility in Europe fell to its partnership with Swedish CMO STIM  – a venture which, after it was struck in 2013, resulted in its own significant uplift in collections.

Tomas Ericsson, CEO of AMRA said, “This uplift is exceptional both because it’s in Europe, one of the most mature markets in the world, and because it’s in addition to the already significant uplift from Kobalt’s previous partnership with STIM.

“To deliver a combined 28% uplift from Spotify and YouTube on top of what Kobalt has already achieved with STIM, is truly an amazing result. As well as a strong indicator of the tremendous uplift to come from the other major DSP’s and other markets around the world.”

The Nuits Sonores festival, which takes place annually in the city of Lyon was created in 2003. The European Lab is only five years old but is quickly gathering pace. Running in parallel with the festival, this cultural forum is designed to promote discussion about cultural challenges in Europe.

Wolfgang Spindler, euronews: “The European ‘spirit’ is going through a crisis, globalisation is diminishing cultural diversity, the internet seems to dictate our lives and many are finding it hard to remain optimistic about the future. In the words of French writer Raphaël Glucksmann, this generation is suffering from a hangover.”

Why we need an Open Source music industry 

Why we need an Open Source music industry  | Infos sur le milieu musical international | Scoop.it
While the music industry bickered in the media over fractions of cents per stream, there were innumerous development projects shipped and celebrated by corporate and independent coders. Historic rivals formed enviable collaborations. Petabytes of content alongside billions of lines of code were released. At the center of it all – open source and free sharing of digital resources. Amazingly, companies and people have been able to do this while still profitably protecting the value of intellectual property.

The global open source renaissance is here. There is as an opportunity to leverage the same resources and adopt the same guiding principles that have seen success everywhere else. Most, if not all of the core tools have already been developed; let’s work together to bring them to the music world. The wider music industry now has an opportunity to build on our existing collaborative spirit. Instead of hiding behind opaque processes masquerading as ’trade secrets’, let’s remember and re-engage our own rich history of artistic collaboration.
