Spotify: 'We have to turn ourselves into the OS of music' - The Guardian (blog)

Spotify: 'We have to turn ourselves into the OS of music' - The Guardian (blog) | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it
So, an iPhone app built on Spotify's API is now more popular than the main Spotify app – but since SpotOn Radio requires users to be paying for Spotify, this isn't a problem for the company.

A number of startups and media companies – including The Guardian – jumped on board Spotify's desktop apps platform when it went live. The next wave of apps may come from another source though: music labels.

"It's a really interesting platform for artists and labels to really enhance the experience around the music," says Garmark.

"In this digital age of music, the experience in some ways got reduced to just a track or a playlist. But with these apps, it can start getting back to the old way of immersing yourself in the album cover, or reading about the music while listening to it. And artists can use it to connect with their audience."

Facebook Expands Media Sharing on Timeline - Too Much Content, Not Enough Social?

Facebook Expands Media Sharing on Timeline - Too Much Content, Not Enough Social? | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

One of the intriguing aspects of Facebook Timeline, ever since the initial launch last September, is how it highlights the media you consume. Music you listen to, videos you watch, newspapers and books you read, and (more recently) images you "pin" on Pinterest. Facebook termed the concept frictionless sharing, because it allows you to automatically share the media you consume with your friends.

Classements : GfK Music intègre l'e-commerce et fusionne les ventes de singles

Classements : GfK Music intègre l'e-commerce et fusionne les ventes de singles | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

Petite révolution dans les classements des ventes de musique enregistrée, réalisés hebdomadairement par GfK Music. D'abord, les Tops intègrent désormais la Base de données interprofessionnelle de référencement des catalogues des producteurs phonographiques (Bipp), développée par Kantar Media pour le compte du Snep.

 

Mais le changement le plus notoire reste sans doute l'incorporation de deux plateformes d'e-commerce dans le panel des ventes physiques, l'échantillon de GfK n'étant jusqu'ici composé que de magasins.

 

Un changement qui tend à mettre les classements en phase avec la réalité du marché, l'e-commerce s'étant affirmé au fil des années comme un canal de distribution de moins en moins négligeable.

That's according to Topspin CEO Ian Rogers, who disclosed the ratio at SF MusicTech Summit. "Physical is 75 percent of my business," Rogers relayed as part of a broader discussion on physical sales.

 

But what is 'business,' exactly? In a follow-up email, Rogers told Digital Music News that the 75 percent figure does indeed refer to actual revenues - meaning, dollars. In terms of actual units sold, the digital-to-physical ratio moves towards 50:50. Here's the ratio Rogers offered:

 

By volume: 50/50 digital/physical

By dollars: 25/75 digital/physical

EMI Helps Developers Navigate Building Apps for Music Industry

EMI Helps Developers Navigate Building Apps for Music Industry | MUSIC:ENTER | Scoop.it

The music industry is a very attractive area for developers build web and mobile apps, because of the wide appeal of music in all ages and markets. There are 164 music APIsin our directory. For a developer, building an app isn’t hard, but making sure all your music, lyrics and other content is properly licensed can get trickier.

 

EMI wanted to help developers easily access and license their music catalog, so naturally they started with an API, but after realizing the scope of planning, deploying and managing an API–EMI decided to partner with The Echo Nest, an existing music development platform, who already had the necessary infrastructure and experience to properly deploy and manage the EMI music catalog API.
