Cable boxes don’t run music apps, and judging from the cable companies’ record, they’re not going to be any time soon. Standard cable boxes still aren’t at the level where TiVo was five years ago in terms of interface and functionality.

EMI Music opens its catalog up to developers to create apps for its artists

EMI Music opens its catalog up to developers to create apps for its artists | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
The music industry isn’t exactly known for being easy to get along with when it comes to the app developer community. That’s why a new deal announced today between music group EMI Music and ‘music intelligence’ startup The Echo Nest is particularly intriguing.

The tie-up sees The Echo Nest host and manage a ‘sandbox’ for app developers. Through this portal, EMI Music will offer creative briefs and opportunities to collaborate on building apps for artists such as Gorillaz, The Pet Shop Boys and Tinie Tempah.

Once developers have successfully registered for an API key, they’re able to submit app concepts to EMI and The Echo Nest. Apps that are approved will then be released by EMI under a revenue sharing model that sees both developers and rightsholders paid, and the intellectual property for the technology retained by the developer. Both free-with-ads, and paid-for apps will be considered, across platforms such as the Web, iOS and Android.

The initiative provides access to music from the famous Blue Note Records jazz label, and a catalog of thousands of songs from acts such as Culture Club, Shirley Bassey and The Verve. Developers will be able to make use of The Echo Nest’s vast database of information about songs, from simple things like tempo and genre, to complex data about the ‘mood’ of songs. There’s also access to dynamic playlist APIs, open source audio fingerprinting, audio analysis, and remix software.

Echofi helps you find artists on Spotify that fit your tastes

Echofi helps you find artists on Spotify that fit your tastes | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

"Using Spotify can be a bit overwhelming. You’re given a huge database of music to surf through with nothing more than a search box. Of course Spotify has made playlists and tracks social, but if you don’t have a lot of Facebook friends using the service, you’ll be hard pressed to find music that you’ll enjoy.

Echofi is a simple web app that uses Spotify’s API to find music that’s more relevant to you.

Simply search for an artist that you like, and Echofi will launch your desktop app with a song by a similar artist. You can then give the song a thumbs up or down using Echofi, and another song will be started for you. It’s kind of a Pandora-esque feature using Spotify."

Just How Important Do You Think iTunes Actually Is?….

Just How Important Do You Think iTunes Actually Is?…. | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

The key takeaway is that two of the oldest models in the digital marketplace (radio and retail) dominate in terms of users. Persistence certainly pays off for Pandora and Apple.

The iTunes Store is of course more important than Pandora for music industry revenue as its core function is to sell music. More than eight years after launch the iTunes Store remains by far the biggest success story in digital music sales, which given Apple’s relative lack of interest in innovating iTunes compared to their hardware, says as much about the competition as it does Apple.
