What Does A Song That Costs $5 Sound Like? : NPR | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Last week, Sony Corporation announced a new line of high-end audio components that promise to deliver a better online audio experience. The announcement comes amid growing evidence that music fans are tired of the crappy sound they hear on their portable music players. Case in point is the success of Cookie Marenco's business of selling super high-definition music downloads.

This is a very reliable source. The article discusses how the artists aren't being fairly compensated when their music is being streamed on music streaming sites. The record labels and the streaming websites are getting the majority of the revenue. I don't feel this is right. Record labels tend to profit more off of artists music than the artists do, and that goes for any avenue for getting music out their. Whether that avenue is a music streaming site, iTunes, or CD sales. Artists just don't make as much off of their music as the label they are under.

Many artists are rebelling against the idea of music streaming services and people feel that people "owning" music might be obsolete anymore. Music streaming services have changed the game and nature of the recording industry. For example, certain views and plays on Youtube now count towards Billboard rankings. However, these streaming sites have paid for rights and plays often contribute towards royalties that the artists collect upon. Streaming services often feel they are highlighting the underdogs and bringing people out of the darkness and recognizing them.

Their are 2 really good points in this Article. One says that you SHOULDN'T be paid for them streaming YOUR music. But the other side of that is that you SHOULD get paid for streaming YOUR music. Multiple people have pulled albums because they were not making enough money on these streaming services. "Spotify is now valued at 3$ billion dollars" and none of the artists have ever seen that money.

Can Streaming Services Make Money? : NPR

Can Streaming Services Make Money? : NPR | Kill The Record Industry | Scoop.it

Pandora, Rdio and Spotify are changing the way we listen to music, but all have had money issues. Apple and Google join the fray this year and music producer Jimmy Iovine is launching a service with Beats by Dre.

Pierre Priot's insight:

Streaming services will sure make money, but what about the artists?

Currently, one of the most talked about changes to the music industry as we know is streaming. I like the idea that an artist can make a song, release the song, and if a person plays the song they get payed. Thats how it should work. The more you listen they more they receive. You should also be able to tip the artists.


Dominick Cangialosi's curator insight, November 11, 2015 3:43 PM

I really enjoyed this Article. It truly brought out alot of information you normally wouldn't read about. Pandora is one of my favorites and from the looks of it. It is to 70 Million people as well. Streaming services seems that they are making alot more money then people think if pandora has the money to drop almost 1 million dollars a day on Fees.

Crowd Funding For Musicians Isn't The Future; It's The Present : NPR

Musicians have to spend money and a lot of time to hit their crowd-funding goals, so failure is expensive. But for some people, at specific moments in their careers, crowd funding can be a piece of the puzzle.

Rusolo No Sleep's curator insight, October 11, 2015 5:28 PM

Crowd funding gives musicians who don't like their arrangement with a record label another option to make money. The future is changing and crowd funding is just a piece of the action.
