Why Mobile Apps Matter For Music - Music Think Tank

Why Mobile Apps Matter For Music - Music Think Tank | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Mobile phones can be considered either an asset or a hindrance depending on whom you ask. At one point, mobile phones were only available in brick sizes reminiscent of the scenes in A Night At The Roxbury. Fast forward to the present day when mobile phones dominate nearly every facet of human behavior. They have disrupted how we communicate with one another, how we function in a work environment, and how we choose to spend our free time. You can’t walk by a crowd of people without seeing someone typing on their Blackberry or iPhone. With the amount of impact the mobile phone has had on daily life, it is only recently that this disruption has infiltrated music.

Music Hack Day Hall of Fame - Music Features

Music Hack Day Hall of Fame - Music Features | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Touring, merchandising, and marketing aside, the future of the entertainment industry is absolutely tech- and application-based. Of those apps that are changing how we share and consume music, many got their start at Music Hack Day events. In Red Bull–fueled marathon sessions held worldwide, Hack Days send developers on maniacal sprees of spinning music metadata into web-app gold.

 

Some of those visionary hack-a-thons happened right here, at Microsoft's New England Research and Development (NERD) center in Cambridge, and were hosted by the Somerville-based music-tech behemoth Echo Nest. This coming weekend, indie developers and Echo Nest facilitators will continue the tradition with a two-day "Hackers' Weekend" during Rethink Music.

Facebook Timeline for Artists (When Platforms Forget Their Responsibilities) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Regular readers will know I’m a big advocate of content platforms and ecosystems. Indeed device based ecosystems such as iTunes, Kindle and xBox are the success stories of paid content. More recently these platforms have been complemented by a new wave of ecosystems by the likes of Facebook and Spotify, that depend upon software and user data for walls instead of hardware. Both sets of ecosystems depend upon 3rd party developer and / publisher platforms for success.
