Ten Things To Know about Today’s Music Biz

Ten Things To Know about Today’s Music Biz | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it



The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Nick DeMartino recently moderated 2 music panels at Digital Hollywood:  "There were two panels with two discussions (music & YouTube; music and social), but truthfully, this is an ongoing conversation in which music is the canary in the coal mine – trends we see now in music are trends we’ll see throughout the digital media ecosystem."

Nathan Berghout's curator insight, May 9, 2:27 AM

Because the music industry is changing so much, it has become even harder to "become" someone. There is no longer just the radio and public exposure, now bands have to take social media and the internet into account when looking to get out there and make something of themselves.

Chris Milk: the digital artist making music videos fly into the future | Transmedia: Storytelling for the Digital Age | Scoop.it
The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Simon Parkin:  'Milk wants to create art that can impact millions simultaneously, so he’s turned to virtual reality, which is set to make a triumphant return in the form of the Oculus Rift, VR goggles built from smart-phone technology. He is unequivocal about it: VR is what will succeed film as the “future of storytelling” and the “next great canvas for human expression”.'

Vivalist's curator insight, July 4, 2014 6:01 AM

Chris Milk is a true 21st century artist. The fact that he learned to code at an early age is very relevant. His collaboration is Aaron Koblin are mind blowing and he can also truly shine on his own - as the Lincoln Hello Again project shows it

Lady Gaga decided to take an app-based route to help promote the release of her new album.  I think this is a smart way to interact with fans.  Though, I have seen artists do this before, and it never really turns out as well as they planned.

This 3d cube presents six audio/video streams on the six faces of a cube. As the user rotates the cube in three dimensions, the audio streams mix and transition smoothly according to which face is most in view.

 

The technology driving this is WebGL and HTML5 soon to become familiar to us all, and bringing improved quality for accessing and viewing three dimensional environments.

This article discusses Amanda Palmer and her band "Grand Theft Orchestra". I personally am inspired by her creative work ethic and methods she uses to get intouch with her audiences.  She stresses how much she trusts her audiences to help her band's movement. She doesnt consider begging and asking for help the same thing. She and her band have successful music, and creative fundamentals.
