What the Music Business Can Learn From the Gaming and Gambling Industries

What the Music Business Can Learn From the Gaming and Gambling Industries | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

"When it comes making money, the music industry – from labels, to artists, managers, promoters and venues – is stuck in the past. While the industry has embraced digital technology for production and distribution, almost everyone still insists on selling albums and songs. And while the industry continues to plod forward with its model of selling music "products," fans have moved on. They want music for free, but are willing to pay for music 'experiences.'"

Webgrrl's insight:

I am a Minnow! ~ First, artists and labels should get comfortable with the fact that some people aren't likely to pay for music, instead relying on radio, YouTube, downloads from friends, etc. But these 'customers' (minnows) are important, because without them, you cannot attract dolphins or whales. Their sheer number means they can support an artist in an important, non-monetary way: influence.

You'll never guess how the dictionary editor found out about the term.
Webgrrl's insight:

that one of the all-time best Australian colloquialisms ‘bush doof’ has just been added to the Macquarie Dictionary.bush doof’, which is a remote location you go to for a dance party. I stumbled across one of these in South Australia – the remnants, it had happened the night before – it was really amazing, way out in the bush and you’ve got sound systems and a big dance party: hence ‘bush doof’.” -Sue Butler, dictionary editor

Björk and Sir David Attenborough Team Up in a New Documentary About Music and Technology

Björk and Sir David Attenborough Team Up in a New Documentary About Music and Technology | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it
There’s a long and companionable history between music and mathematics. While it is often said that every culture has its own form of music, it’s also nearly just as true that most ancient cultures explored the mathematical principles of sound.
Webgrrl's insight:

In the documentary, Attenborough explores how music exists in the natural world, taking viewers through the filming of the Reed Warbler and Blue Whales. For her part, Björk argues that cutting-edge technology keeps music intuitive and accessible  (see documentary on youtube, inlcuded in this article at Openculture)

Best For Music: PS4 or Xbox One?

Best For Music: PS4 or Xbox One? | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Events | Scoop.it

"Let’s get one thing out of the way: Nobody buys a gaming console for music. Yes, modern consoles increasingly run all kinds of non-game apps — especially the entertainment kind — as the manufacturers of just about every type of consumer electronics aim to be the primary interface between people and their favorites 1s and 0s.

 

These are gaming machines, but they are also music machines, a fact that takes on a heightened importance because not every gamer has decided between Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4."

I don't play games at all ~ but i do like a quality sound system and have always gone for the top end stuff - which i believe would ultimately be the main factor how the sound is heard. But for you boys and grrl gamers out there ~ which would you choose?

New music platform connects bands with fans. Bands are paid instantly through PayPal when purchases are made, with Kicktone retaining just 15% of the purchase price.

Kicktone makes it easy for bands to sell music to their fans, and for fans to share music with their friends. Indie bands don't have a million dollars to spend on marketing, or encouraging radio stations to play their music, so it's no good just putting your music online, you have to actually get it in front of people,”  >> kicktone.com
