The Elephant In The Music Room

The Elephant In The Music Room | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it
The trouble brewing that nobody wants to talk about.

 

Match that mind-boggling volume of available music with staggering shifts in technology and listener habits, and Lack of Discovery rears its ugly head as an alarming and incredibly complex set of problems with potentially catastrophic ramifications for most musicians, and for the recorded music industry itself.

Spotify Pays Peanuts to Artists. That’s Not Necessarily a Problem.

Spotify Pays Peanuts to Artists. That’s Not Necessarily a Problem. | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

Music-streaming services really don’t exploit performers. Songwriters, though—that’s another story.

Claudio Matta's curator insight, March 13, 12:20 PM

This article shows very good examples of evidence about how Spotify and Pandora pay peanuts to very recognized and successful artists like David Lowery, singer-guitarist of Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, Thom Yorke of Radiohead and producer Nigel Godrich. 

I disagree in the "streaming music is not the digital equivalent of radio" point because for me it actually is the equivalent of radio and I think that artists should definitely get paid what they deserve for each stream, which is a lot more than they're getting right now. Therefore, I do think it is a problem that artists are getting paid peanuts from streaming services.

Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings

Pushing back the silence: a new technology, and the battle to save old recordings | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it
An experimental physicist named Carl Haber has won wide recognition, and a MacArthur Fellowship, for a revolutionary image-scanning technology that has the power to pull sound from rare and fragile recordings without touching them, and in so doing, to help protect some of the most vulnerable corners of this country’s aural heritage. Over the last few months, a large converted mill building in Andover has become home to the fourth groove-scanning system in the country. The IRENE system in Andover lives at the Northeast Document Conservation Center, an independent conservation lab. In a small back room, a sound archivist has been working daily, scanning all varieties of records as well as older wax cylinders whose grooves are etched vertically and therefore require a special 3-D scanning technique.

Techne: Content Providers

Techne: Content Providers | Music, Theatre, and Dance | Scoop.it

We often consider technology an imposition on both our craft and our business: social media putting pressure on everything from marketing to performance, for example, or IT budgets draining resources from “more important” work. But the etymological root of technology is techne: the Greek word for art. To paraphrase cartoonist Walt Kelly, we have met the enemy, and it is us.
