Music Intelligence for Sale

Music Intelligence for Sale | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Information is changing the music industry; not only in the ways we consume and discover music, but as well in the ways companies are arming themselves for competition.


Streaming services see gold in the figures that fuel recommendation algorithms, and now content companies, driven too by the alluring growth of digital tech, are proudly announcing their latest partnerships with leading software-as-a-service companies and the terabytes of social data multiplying on their servers.


The future of music discovery—and potentially, of artist development—is now in the numbers.

ThinkDigital™'s curator insight, April 9, 2014 2:56 PM

pioneering semantic web technology...  as suggested by this article, amazon's & google's "giant brain" model can be effectively applied to verticals as well.  gratifying evolutionary strides...  but i'd also like to see advances that make better use of and accommodate user inputs.  what i envision is reverse filtration – something like what amazon is already doing with shopping for goods – especially with regard to lyrical subject matter, not just audio/aural elements like beat, melody, genre, rhythm and such.

Facebook, Twitter Execs Talk Music Apps at SF MusicTech Summit 2013

Facebook, Twitter Execs Talk Music Apps at SF MusicTech Summit 2013 | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Facebook Strategic Partnerships manager Ime Archibong handed out social networking tips for musicians and music companies, while Twitter #Music's Stephen Phillips pleaded for patience from the industry at the opening of the SF Musictech Summit XIII at San Francisco's Hotel Kabuki on Tuesday.

 

Archibong started the twice-a-year gathering of more than a thousand technologists, dealmakers and musicians by pointing music app developers to Facebook's new acquisition, Parse, which is a service that runs apps across multiple platforms. Facebook purchased the "mobile-backend-as-a-service" startup in April for a rumored $85 million, Techcrunch reported.

 

"If you are an early developer I'd actually say go look at the Parse ecosystem and the tools and the services they provide. It gives you a way of looking at the backend and everything you use to scale out across the platform to mobile apps instead of just focusing in on the user experience, the UI, the fun parts," Archibong said.

Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve"

Streaming Music Apps - "‘PLAY GUETTA shows the potential of what streaming music apps can achieve" | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
Meanwhile on Spotify’s app platform comes the launch of David Guetta’s ‘PLAY GUETTA’ app. Back when Spotify launched artist apps back in June I said that they were a great start on the rod to relevance for streaming music services and music discovery but that there was a long distance to go (which was a polite way of saying that the first wave of apps weren’t very good). The David Guetta app is a different kettle of fish altogether. Whereas the first wave of apps had an air of unfulfilled promised ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is a rich, immersive and – crucially – massively social app. As a testament to the importance of Spotify’s app ecosystem, ‘PLAY GUETTA’ is built using the Soundrop SDK, itself a Spotify app.
