BitTorrent's Music Industry Team-Up

BitTorrent's Music Industry Team-Up | Overview of Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it
The peer-to-peer company wants to shed its scofflaw image

Via Pierre Priot
Kelvin Omila's insight:

in this article, Moby talks about his approval of the media sharing site BitTorrent. He goes on explaining that he is okay with fans downloading his music and he embraces the idea of his fans remaking his music. He even goes into saying that he is waiting for a "Bulgarian Death Metal Remix" on his "Innocents" bundle that he has approved BitTorrent to have.

 

Pro/Con:

In this article, it also explains how BitTorrent is trying to change the image of their company and that they are trying to be like "Google" as a search engine to websearchers and "Facebook" to the social networkers. I believe this is a good thing but as Charles Caldas(chief executive officer of Merlin, a London-based agency that negotiates digital rights deals for independent music labels) mentions "... BitTorrent could do more to discourage users’ illegal downloads. “We haven’t seen any evidence of that,” : “I don’t think they are friends."

It's clear to many artists that BitTorrent affects record sales and profits, but artists like Linkin Park and Madonna has embraced the "Bundle" idea of BitTorrent.

BitTorrent is just another content delivery protocol. A real fast one.

What you do with it is up to you.

In this topic, I gave my opinions on topics such as Drugs in Music, Vinyl Sales in our Digital-Media Age, different affects of music and the studies conducted through research, and I even found a glossary of music terms valuable to any recording engineers.

In this study/article, it explains and shows that music has an affect to the nurses who participated to this study, in where the researchers sat 54 nurses participants and findings showed that while listening to music, these nurses showed results such as a lower perceived stress level, cortisol, heart rate, mean arterial pressure and higher finger temperature while listening to music.

Nursing - stressful?  

 

Apparently if you compare nurses who sit in a chair for 30 minutes just resting, with nurses who listen to music for 30 minutes during their shift - the music group has significantly lower levels of cortisol, blood pressure, heart rate and all the other stress related symptoms.  Nice!

The Unlikely Return Of Vinyl Records, And How Indie Musicians Are Making Money On Them

The Unlikely Return Of Vinyl Records, And How Indie Musicians Are Making Money On Them | Overview of Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it

Independent bands are turning to outsourced vinyl record production to recapture the long-lost album experience--and the monetary value--that everyone thought the iTunes store had killed.


Via Pierre Priot
Kelvin Omila's insight:

"...This July, Soundscan stats revealed 2.9 million LP’s sold in the last six months, a 33.5% rise over the first half of 2013. Vinyl sales could hit 5.9 million by the end of the year if this pace keeps up, about a 28% increase over 2012...."

 

 

This is great, the Music industry definitely has more advantages in this day and age in either selling music or having an easier way to promote their music. Although most artist can have their "quality" work be lost in the "sea of trash" because of all the digital media capabilities out there, it's still much easier to produce a song and find a social media site to promote your work. This capability is great but as an artist, a serious artist, its a feeling of an accomplishment to have your work recorded and sold through vinyls.

 

Because of the diversity of music nowadays, listeners are much more involved in supporting their favored artist. So for an artist to come out with their product and produce it on a vinyl, is a great experience for the true fans to have a vinyl record of their favored artist than just having an MP3 copy .

Although this touches the fans in a much intimate level, the work that will have to be dedicated to producing music this route would be much more harder financially and physically.

User experience, that's the bottom line. Vinyl brings user experience, period.

Music in Dreams

Music in Dreams | Overview of Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it

Via Andrew McCluskey
Kelvin Omila's insight:

This is a very interesting article and research topic. The article talks about how there has not been a study documenting music happening in our dreams.

 

"...In this study, 35 professional musicians and 35 non-professional musicians took part. The professional musicians were all either instrumental or vocal performers of “Western tonal music” while the non-professional musicians were all undergraduate students..."

 

I agree with the article that upon waking up from a dream where you experience hearing music, that it carries on throughout the day and that you cannot seem to forget that music or it repeatedly plays the tune over and over again.

 

Very interesting read.

A write up of a small 2005 study that looked at how music figured in dreams by comparing dream diaries of 35 musicians against 35 non musicians.  I guess unsurprisingly enough the musicians dreamt of music more than twice as much as the non-musicians - but the really fun part was that about half of the music recalled by the dreamers was "non-standard." 

 

The idea that you can be creating new music when you're asleep is mighty enticing and is in line with the famous "sleeping compositions" of Berlioz and Stravinsky.    I know from my own experience that I can wake with a theme in my head that surely wasn't there the night before.  I really like this and it fits nicely with the idea of flow and subconscious creativity - I'm guessing it doesn't have to be just music either!

(EN) – Recording Studios Glossary | Dan McAvinchey | Overview of Audio Arts Industry | Scoop.it

"Understanding many of the hundreds of terms used in a recording studio by producers, engineers, composers, and musicians can be an overwhelming task. We hope to help eliminate the confusion by compiling an on-line glossary that will attempt to define commonly used buzzwords and jargon, both subjective (“I need a warm, weighty, yet puffy bass sound here…”) and straight-forward (“Did you join ASCAP yet…”). Using the glossary will not make you an expert overnight, but it will help keep you in the know and keep you abreast of all the specialized terminology that seems to ..."

Kelvin Omila's insight:

McAvinchey, has posted this great glossary of words in music; in here, you can find terms, even to a "seasoned" recording engineer might not now.

Words like  "warm", "acoustic-feel", or  what is an "accent microphone" this is a great article with resources I can use to refer back to, just incase I want to keep a knowledgable look as a recording engineer.

This is a great source for anyone new to studios. It will help them learn some of the terms that are used in Recording Studios.

New York rap duo Da Youngfellaz has been sued for using a loan on drugs and flying to music festivals at which they were not performing.

Kelvin Omila's insight:

this is unreal, I understand that some artist become more productive and pass their creativity limits when on drugs but I don't understand how someone or a group can blow $150,000 on drugs. I know that there are artist who can easily blow that much money in a short period of time but those artist are usually "well-off", they have either budget their funds to support their habit and limit themselves to a certain amount but for an upcoming artist? its absurd, what a waste of money, and more importantly, they blew the chances of showing off whatever talent they might have had.
