Remix, remake, remodel

Remix, remake, remodel | music innovation | Scoop.it

borrowing and stealing since day one. But does a remix denote more about the working process than the actual nature of the track? When so much is on long term loan, where’s the dividing line between say, a prodigiously used sample and a remix? Is ‘remix’ just a label that’s used top-down, from label to listener, to make sure you’re accessing an audience efficiently?

9 reasons why Google and Apple should be worried « Music Machinery

For the last year we’ve heard rumors of how both Apple and Google were getting close to releasing music locker services that allow music listeners to upload their music collection to the cloud giving them the ability to listen to their music everywhere.

Amazon’s entry into the music locker is a big deal and should be particularly worrisome for Google and Apple. Amazon brings some special sauce to the music locker world that will make them a formidable competitor...

Death To The Shiny Disc: Time To Go All-Digital

Death To The Shiny Disc: Time To Go All-Digital | music innovation | Scoop.it
Back at Warners I was in a meeting about “reintroducing” a band to the market, which basically means the last record was a stiff so we needed to “reboot” them. Not dissimilar to what Hollywood does to franchises.

A lot of ideas were floated around: vinyl singles, etc. My statement was “death to the shiny disc!” Basically, eliminate all physical, and go completely digital. Nothing was to be gained by putting out low margin product. This was four years ago. As you can imagine, that statement was met with some glares. I was pulled aside later and advised that the shiny disk still paid for my shiny servers. I didn’t use that catch phrase again.

Sur la "vraie" portabilité de la musique et le "social music player" de demain | music innovation | Scoop.it
A se gargariser de musique « dans les nuages » et d'ubiquité de l'accès aux contenus, sur son PC, sa TV, son mobile ou la moindre console de jeu, en mode connecté ou non, il se peut que l'on passe à côté de la vraie notion de « portabilité » de la musique.

Just One More Year Until Digital Music Beats Physical CD Sales - Techland - TIME.com

Just One More Year Until Digital Music Beats Physical CD Sales   - Techland - TIME.com | music innovation | Scoop.it
Newsflash: Digital music sales will overtake CD sales in the US for the first time in 2012, according to a new study released by Strategy Analytics.
I know what you're thinking: Didn't that already happen? Like, forever ago? Strange but true, CD sales are still the biggest moneymakers for the music industry. Until next year, when everything changes.
Physical CD sales are expected to drop another 40 percent next year to $2.7 billion, while digital music--mostly sold through iTunes--will make an estimated $2.8 billion. Not that it's any kind of net positive: The entire music industry's expected to take a pretty substantial hit, dropping from $6.2 billion in overall 2010 sales to a humbler $5.5 billion next year.
