So What Can The Music Industry Do Now? | Techdirt | JonathanGiraldoce | Scoop.it

The revenues of the record labels have fallen by more than 60% since Napster's debut. And yet there was nothing inevitable about this tale of decline. Hollywood, for example, has fared better. To be sure, Hollywood worries a lot about piracy. But while there is plenty of it, especially overseas, piracy has yet to threaten the existence of the major film studios.

Though the 5 tips are well-prepared and argued, it is funny to think about YouTube artists as these extremely disciplined individuals. I've always thrown together something passionate to me and thrown it on YouTube. It's difficult for me to think of YouTube as a disciplined space where people are actively hunting for followers.

A Changing Music Industry Calls for Unconventional Marketing and Promotion

A Changing Music Industry Calls for Unconventional Marketing and Promotion | JonathanGiraldoce | Scoop.it

The music industry’s troubles are well documented, hinging on contradictory realities: Music is too free to be expensive and too expensive to be free.

 

People no longer spend money on music automatically, so promoting it is arguably more important than ever. One approach is to try to “turn your band into a virus.” Let’s take a look at three other proven ways to promote music: merchandise, apps, and location.

Why Is American English the Lingua Franca of Pop Music?

Why Is American English the Lingua Franca of Pop Music? | JonathanGiraldoce | Scoop.it
For the newest James Bond movie, Skyfall, English singer Adele recorded a song with the same name. Though Adele speaks with a strong London accent, her singing voice sounds more American than British.

 

“British pop singers have been imitating American pronunciations since Cliff Richard, the Beatles, and the Rolling Stones began recording in the 1960s.* These musicians were largely influenced by the African-American Vernacular English of black American blues and rock and roll singers like Chuck Berry, but their faux-American dialects usually comprised aspects of several American dialects. Imitating an American accent involved both the adoption of American vowel sounds and rhoticity: the pronunciation of r’s wherever they appear in a word. (Nonrhoticity, by contrast, is the habit of dropping r’s at the end of a syllable, as most dialects of England do.) …

 

Linguist Peter Trudgill tracked rhoticity in British rock music over the years and found that the Beatles’ pronunciation of r’s decreased over the course of the 1960s, settling into a trans-Atlantic sound that incorporated aspects of both British and American dialects. The trend also went in the opposite direction as new genres developed: American pop-punk vocalists like Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day took on a British-tinged accent to sound more like seminal artists such as Joe Strummer of the Clash. Contemporary singers continue to adopt various accents according to their genre; Keith Urban, who is Australian, sings country music with a marked American Southern accent. A recent study suggests that the default singing accent for New Zealand pop singers utilizes American vowel sounds, even when the singers aren’t trying to sound American, perhaps because today’s singers were brought up listening to American (and imitation-American) pop vocals.”

Study suggests streaming services are encouraging people to pay for music - StrategyEye Digital Media

Study suggests streaming services are encouraging people to pay for music - StrategyEye Digital Media | JonathanGiraldoce | Scoop.it

(Curator's comment: Note that this study, by WIMP, states that streaming is growing "as younger users switch from downloads and CD buying to services such as Spotify and Rdio.")

 

The popularity of streaming services is growing in the Nordic European countries and Germany, with growth in usage also apparently making more consumers willing to pay for access, according to a new survey from Norwegian streaming service WiMP.

 

The company, which clearly has a vested interest in such claims, says that streaming usage is growing across Norway, Denmark, Sweden and Germany as younger users switch from downloads and CD buying to services such as Spotify and Rdio. Usage is currently highest in Norway, with 61% using a streaming service, versus 56% in Sweden, 35% in Denmark and 16% in Germany. WiMP surveyed 1,000 respondents in the four markets where it is currently active.

 

WiMP claims that willingness to pay for a subscription "increased in parallel" with the growth in streaming access, with Norway reporting the highest year-on-year growth. A third of Norwegians are willing to pay for streaming, up from 20% last year, though Swedes remain ahead at 36%, having had access to streaming services longer. Meanwhile, 25% of Germans say they are willing to pay, trailed by 14% of Danes.

Jazz/Progressive Rock Review: Jakob Juhkam-T | JonathanGiraldoce | Scoop.it



This was indeed an interesting and surprising CD (Jakob Juhkam T) to land in front of me this week for review. Not only was I unaware of the artist, Jacob Juhkam, it was not easy to find out much about the man himself. What little I could discover was that Jakob is an Estonian composer based in Tallinn and he is influenced by a certain Frank Zappa.
