Minnesota musicians making the most of a digitial economy | Blandin on Broadband | Music Business | Scoop.it

The Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal ran a series on Friday of Minnesota musicians who are thriving in the digital economy. Think of how different the music business is now that we can download, upload and manipulate audio files quickly and easily. The music industry as a whole has not always handles the changes with grace – so it’s nice to see some shining local stars who have.

 

The series is worth reading – in fact I decided it was worth a MSPBJ substitution – but I just wanted to offer a laundry list of musicians and innovations…

Dako Larsson's insight:

    My insight is that The Minnesota St Paul Business was talking about how digital music has changed the industry because people can download the music right away from the internet.  A pro to this is that they do not have to wait to get the music from the store and they can hear it right after it downloads.  A con to this is that not a lot of people are buying albums anymore becuase it is easier to download it.  

     Also if they push to go digital they can get more sales nationwide because people can get their album easier online.

This article is about a series of musicians that are thriving in the new digital industry in different ways than just depending on a track sales in iTunes. From research, I've found that the main problem with the industry right now is that it doesn't reward sales as much as it rewards the extras; other sales, performances, donations, kickstarters. With the digital era become more accessible, it rewards indie efforts just as much, if not more, than commercial ones. There are lessons to be learned from the scope of indie production and what it takes to appeal and be spread over the internet... especially with sales becoming less important, and the whole range of exposure.

Dako Larsson's insight:

My insight on this is Jonathan Carson is Vevos first chief revenue officer ever.  He will be doing some of the duties David Kohl did previously before Vevo bought out Jonathan Carsons company BuzzMetrics which he co-founded.

Universal Music Distribution Owns Record Nine of Top 10 Digital Songs

Universal Music Distribution Owns Record Nine of Top 10 Digital Songs | Music Business | Scoop.it
For the first time ever, one distribution company owns nine of the top 10 titles on Billboard's Digital Songs chart.

Dako Larsson's insight:

My insight is this is the first distrubution company to ever to own 9 out of the top 10 songs on the top 10 chart.  Because of this it shows that Universal Music Group is growing and is looking to stay on top with the number one hits.  They want artists that can keep them on the top 10 list so they can own all of the top 10 songs on the list.

Mobile Music Consumption Explodes

Mobile Music Consumption Explodes | Music Business | Scoop.it
More and more fans are using smartphones and tablets to consume music on the go. But what have these services meant for consumers’ smartphone activities and data plans?

Via Jérôme Rastoldo
Dako Larsson's insight:

My insight on this is that more people are buying and listening to music on their mobile phones because it is easier for them.  $50.4 billion dollars was projected this year in 2013 on overall consumer music spending.  This shows more people are listening to music on mobile devices then on computers and albums.

'Boardwalk Empire' Music Supervisor Randall Poster on Bringing 1920s 'Hits ...
Hollywood Reporter
Boardwalk Empire music supervisor Randall Poster also brought in contemporary singers to breathe new life into century-old songs.
Dako Larsson's insight:

My insight is Randall Poster is bringing the old 1920 songs and voices of people into 2013 to make them sound better for The Great Gatsby.  He is making a soundtrack for the remake of The Great Gatsby.  He also brought in people to sound like old songs and to remake them.
