Feature your song in our trailer and win a slot at Midem Festival | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

That's not all! The winning artist will perform during Midem Festival for a 30-minute set. You will also receive two free registration passes to Midem 2014, and a free one-year subscription to SoundCloud Pro Unlimited.

Pierre Priot's insight:

That's right. Submit your song for sync at Midem, and don't expect to get paid, you fools!

(But why would need money anyway when you can get exposure and a free Midem tote bag?)

Who needs labels? Lee Morrison, Believe Digital answers | | midemblogmidemblog | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

"In today’s music business it is possible for artists to find success with or without a label. Both options work, but I would strongly argue that artists often need the guidance of a label to stay on track and to progress in their careers. They are also invaluable for contacts, investments, and to give a release some much-needed hype – if the label has a certain edgy appeal and cultural status that is."

Pierre Priot's insight:

The question should be: 'what is to be expected from a record label today?'

NewMusicBox » Blogging MIDEM 2012: Cannes We Keep It Going? | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

There’s lots to report on from my trips to Paris and Nice. I’ve been so busy, I apparently didn’t even notice an earthquake in Italy whose tremors were felt throughout southern France. But that will have to wait for a later date, as I am now in Cannes in the midst of the hurly-burly that is MIDEM.

Digital Music News - Does Midem Still Matter? The Facelift Finally Begins...

Digital Music News - Does Midem Still Matter? The Facelift Finally Begins... | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

You may be here this year. But what about next year, and the year after that? This is now an obvious problem for Midem organizers, who finally got the memo that legacy doesn't pay the bills. Which is why a complete facelift is now underway, with SXSW and even upstarts like the SF MusicTech Summit informing the transformation. The highly-structured presentations and discussion blocks of yesteryear have been replaced with frenetic, all-at-once how-tos, with lots of emphasis on DIY, startups, and 'hothouse' innovation. This is now a legacy conference struggling to find a brand-new sweet-spot, whatever that may be.
