Transparency Takes Center Stage at Berklee's Fair Music Workshop

Transparency Takes Center Stage at Berklee's Fair Music Workshop | Music Industry | Scoop.it
Transparency in the music industry -- essentially, the idea that artists should be privy to the details of how their music is used, where their money is coming from and why -- has taken center stage in a public debate of increasing volume in recent history. On Friday, the Berklee Institute of Music's Rethink Music initiative sponsored the Fair Music Workshop, a series of panels and chats designed to provoke discussion on how transparency can be heightened and reinforced in the music business, at

Chase Taylor McDaniel's curator insight, October 10, 2015 3:09 AM

Artist should have the choice of how and where their music is distributed. The average listener may enjoy a song but have know idea about the artist they are listening to. You can choice any song you would like to listen to due to streaming. This really hinders the artist from being able to get their whole album heard. The artist should be in control to be able to protect the value of their work.

Rick Ross is a genuis and I have more respect for him because he wasn't worried about making his last mixtape which was really an album free to the public for download simply because it would just open up more opportunities to make more money because he has new music to perform.

SoundCloud CEO Alexander Ljung on Making 'Freemium' Work and Negotiating With the Majors

SoundCloud CEO Alexander Ljung on Making 'Freemium' Work and Negotiating With the Majors | Music Industry | Scoop.it
Six months from now, the online audio platform SoundCloud could be competing with Spotify and Apple in the music-streaming business. On the other hand, it also could be the next target of the major labels’ legal wrath, like the recently shuttered Grooveshark. The answer to that billion-dollar question (based on reports of the company’s valuation) depends on Alexander Ljung, SoundCloud’s co-founder and CEO.

Rafael San Inocencio's curator insight, October 10, 2015 10:24 AM

I'm just not really looking forward to paying a subscription to use SoundCloud. A big part of their has a free account at the moment and I doubt they'll continue to use SoundCloud to find new music. As a music producer, I'm going to have to open myself to new methods of finding and posting music after this just because half or more of my audience will not be able to hear my music on SoundCloud.

Conner Hitchcock's curator insight, October 11, 2015 5:24 PM

I really think if spotify or other streaming websites are adding all these new and higher paying forms of advertisements, they should be able to pay the artists more royalties for what they share.  Artists like taylor swift would possibly be part of that.  The stronger ad campaigns that are keeping spotify afloat and in the fight with record labels should be adding to the royalties of the artist.

Godfrey Wilson Sr.'s curator insight, October 11, 2015 11:39 PM

Streaming music is on the upraise and will soon take the music industry over in the future and will lead all music revenues which I think is great. 

Ivette Abundiz's curator insight, November 9, 2015 8:49 PM

This article made me realize that the streaming music industry is growing quite fast, yet, it should be faster. This is due to huge players out there right now like Spotify and Apple Music are basically doing the same thing with many of the same playlist or close. There needs to be some features that differentiate from all the big players right now. Some music apps that are aware of this potential are coming up with features such as one for kids specifically. I believe that the music streaming industry is just setting off to what we can even imagine. The future will be so personalized to each individuals life with music.

With so many streaming services coming out, the options are abroad. The time were in now, the access to music, specifically any song, are at hand's reach. From major recording artists to Independent artists, you can get songs whenever you want them.

Diondre Ricks's curator insight, September 13, 2015 5:12 PM

Technology-driven disruption has transformed how people source and value music content. A fundamental shift from ownership to access means it is becoming less and less viable to make a living from record sales alone. In the world today many don't buy CD's they buy digital music online , the world is more about technology.

A lot of people into music have real jobs. And at times, it does take the motivation out of you. The state of Apple has been an impact since the beginning. Their very first product took the world by storm.
