We’ve seen a lot of different approaches to remix apps on iOS, but MusicTiles looks to be putting a new spin on the idea. It allows “anybody – novices, musicians, and expert composers – to remix songs in a playful manner using virtual modular tiles”.
For those of you that use the Android version, an update has hit the tubes, and here’s a look at what’s new:
- New: Better offline mode bar, so you know why you’re offline. - New: Share music with NFC (Near Field Communication) on ICS. - New: Check out the Audio Effects on ICS (Settings > Audio Effects). - Fixed: More crashes and bugs are now history. - Fictitious: This app likes doing jigsaws on a rainy day.
Speaking exclusively to Billboard.biz ahead of next year's edition, which takes place 26-29 January, Bruno Crolot, Reed MIDEM director of music markets, outlines his vision for next year's edition.
This week also marked the first keynote speaker announcement, with Chinese classical pianist Lang Lang confirmed to appear as part of MIDEM's Visionary Monday program Jan. 28, where he will discuss the role that technology and brand partnerships have played in building his career.

Labels are always looking for something to fill the void left by declining album sales. Next up: premium artist apps.
Lady Gaga is planning a computer application she says will integrate extra content, chats, games, fashion and films along with her next album, "Artpop." Announced in a blog post , Gaga revealed that "Artpop" will be a "multimedia experience" released for iPad, iPhone, mobile devices and computers.
A premium app makes sense for Gaga. First, she has the capacity and resources to produce the content and the technology to make a great premium app that doesn't skimp on the flourishes and fun. Second, she has the fan base to make a premium app cost feasible. Third, her fans have proven to be quite technology adept. Like Gaga, they like gadgets.
Premium apps will have a tougher time with sub-Gaga artists. The market for expensive, hands-in, interactive products is far smaller than the market for less interactive, less expensive recorded music. Few artists have the number of fans Gaga has. And quality of apps will vary by artist and developer, resulting in some disappointments.
