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 & Culture | 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.'"


Via Jérôme Rastoldo
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.

Installation art collective Limelight has transformed the Parliament Building of Romania into a eye-popping, psychedelic light show for the iMapp Bucharest International Video Mapping Competition.

Can Psychedelics Make Us More Moral? | BigThink

Can Psychedelics Make Us More Moral? | BigThink | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Culture | Scoop.it

During its half-century stretch of illegality, questioning psychedelics has always been about health, personal or public. Drugs are bad, says the suburban housewife or urban executive as they ingest a daily cocktail of multi-billion dollar pharmaceuticals. Even food itself is a drug. Chemistry informs the foundation of our sense of self, our philosophies, our behavior.

It has always been about marketing. For example, we know sugar kills through its role in the various diseases of affluence, just as we know marijuana has never killed anyone. This misunderstanding of how chemistry affects our bodies not only pertains to health and economics, but morals as well. This is the very question Brian Earp is asking.  |  read more...

Music & Memory | The power of music in recalling the past. | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Culture | Scoop.it

Oliver Sacks – a British neurologist and pioneer of music and memory research – raises a question; how is it that a human being rendered incapable of recollection by their disease, is able to recall the past with music? How is it that music has the power to allow humans to regain their identity and through their past? Professionals of scientific and musical fields alike are investigating questions not dissimilar to these yet, it’s a case of the more we know the less we understand. | read more..

Guy spends 2 days taking LSD and watching The Simpsons, documents his revelations | ELECTRONICAPEDIA | Artistry & Culture | Scoop.it
A man went on the marathon viewing to end all marathon viewings this week, apparently watching The Simpsons for over two days whilst eating LSD in the hope of finding a hidden truth to the series. The sheer number of Simpsons episodes in existence alone (578 and counting) are probably enough to induce hallucinations, but on acid the jaundiced community of Springfield must have been something else.
