Could this desktop DIY cutting machine be the future of vinyl?

Could this desktop DIY cutting machine be the future of vinyl? | Music | Scoop.it

An Australian inventor has launched a crowd-funding project for a tiny machine he says can cut vinyl records in minutes.

Paul Butler Tayar and his team at Machina Pro want to raise AUD$10,000 to bring the Desktop Record Cutter to market. They hope to “democratise the cutting process” with what they call a ‘turn-key’ stereo cutting system, which lets you simply plug in your audio and cut straight to vinyl.

The Future of Music Curation: Where Are We Headed

Robin Good's curator insight, September 13, 2013 10:13 AM


People want recommendations from people that have their same tastes and values. Human curation is going to make a big difference in how people are going to discover, appreciate and get in love with new music and artists.


From the original article: "In this episode of the Deep Dive, Cortney Harding and Kyle Bylin discuss music curation with outspoken tech exec and startup founder J Herskowitz."


"Curation is a topic that just keeps coming up in the press. Spotify buys Tunigo. 8tracks revamps its website. Songza introduces a paid tier. And Beats Music poaches several high-level people in preparation for a U.S. launch. Meanwhile, Rhapsody and Google Play are talking about how they have been using humans to curate all along.


What does all of this mean? Where might music streaming services take curation next?"


Takeaways:


  • Individual curators may have an edge over crowd-curation.
     
  • Many different types of curation being used.
     
  • It remains to be seen whether expert music curators will win over talented unkown amateur curators.
     
  • Likely, these different approaches may live all side-by-side, satisfying different needs.
     
  • Mood- and experience-curation is a strong emerging trend besides traditional music styles and genres

  • Curated music playlists to enhance specific life activities 


Interesting discussion. Recommended listening. 7/10

David Raimbaud's curator insight, September 19, 2014 2:44 AM

Les gens veulent des recommandations de personnes qui ont leurs mêmes goûts et valeurs. La curation humaine fera une grande différence dans la façon dont les gens vont découvrir, apprécier et acquérir de la nouvelle musique.
 
De l'article original: "In this episode of the Deep Dive, Cortney Harding and Kyle Bylin discuss music curation with outspoken tech exec and startup founder J Herskowitz."
 
Spotify achète Tunigo. 8tracks refond son site Internet. Songza introduit un niveau d'abonnement payant. Et Beats se prépare à dominer le monde de la curation (slogan: "Music by human for human"). La curation rentre dans une nouvelle ère.
