Michael Field's curator insight, September 9, 2014 12:04 PM

This article is great in the sense that you are able to realize how digital downloads really affect corporations like apple and make their shares fall when live streaming of music is being published. Not only is music on Apple Products falling but music in general sale has gone way down in pricing..

The art of asking

Don't make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.
John Booth's insight:

One of the best TEDs I've seen, and really helping people to understand what many indie's go through, or try to go through.  Amanda is exceptionally prepared to build the loyalty of new fans that can now be delivered at internet and mobile speeds.  However, even talented artists may not ever develope such skills, and thus may still have a very hard time, even using todays social networks and tools.  Amanda's perspective can help us to open our hearts and minds to a much wider scope of existing talent, with or without todays technology.  Thank you Ms palmer.

Michael Field's curator insight, September 9, 2014 11:57 AM

Amanda Palmer talks about giving music away for free and how she thinks that we shouldn't be charging money for music and how can we charge for music. She really says it right I honestly agree with her music is great and all but in the end do you really think that music should be charged for she now gives her music away for free and she is still making an incredible amount of money all because she asked people for it. I do not believe in vagrancy but i do think some of her points are really key.

StreetJelly.com :: Live Music Webcasts - Online Busking

StreetJelly is live music webcasts, eConcerts, and online busking. Musicians perform live by webcam for tips. It is like being a street musician, at a piano bar, or at a cafe open mic with a virtual tip jar. StreetJelly is live music only: no recordings, no mp3 downloads, no video libraries. Watch spontaneous and raw performances, chat with musicians, and tip a few tokens to support great talent.
John Booth's insight:

I can see this filling a niche... ie) good musicians and personalities having trouble getting booked, as well as supplementing the incomes of those already in the venue circuit...  not to mention the potential for reaching millions internationally who could never travel to your show in person.

An Open Letter to Oprah, Whose ‘The Life You Want’ Tour Asked Me to Work for Free… - Digital Music News

An Open Letter to Oprah, Whose ‘The Life You Want’ Tour Asked Me to Work for Free… - Digital Music News | Music and Live Event Industry | Scoop.it

John Booth's insight:

Highlights a topic that all live event performers must manage as they develop their business.  The question is, can the performer transition the exposure into better gigs, more fans, and revenue as well.   In 1997, when I had one such gig at a large amphitheater, web tools didn't much exist at the time.  Today, exposure gigs can be more eagerly accepted and used effectively to reach new levels of success.  Social networks plus ticket and merch/cd/mp3 distribution sites, for example are all helping artists acheive better success.  As these tools become more customized to specific industries, we will see even more options for a new generation of greatly empowered new and local talent.  My own personal journey of some 15 + years has been to develop and design such tools for the live event and booking industry.  I hope to share this work with my colleagues in the coming months.

BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) — Stop. Hey, what's that sound? Protest songs are taking their place alongside chants of "I can't breathe" and "Hands up, don't shoot" as demonstrators raise their voices to condemn the deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police. There's something happening here. The killings of Eric Garner and Michael Brown have inspired a musical outpouring perhaps unseen in the U.S. since Pete Seeger helped make "We Shall Overcome" ...

Music labels a money-hungry beast of the past
UW Badger Herald
Since 2007, more musicians have adopted this school of thought, and platforms such as Indiegogo, GoFundMe and ArtistShare have come about to fill the need for a more streamlined process.
John Booth's insight:

The transformation is coming into much better view.  Still more work to be done.   (aka - "3 wheel" and more granular systems will emerge which will "crack the codes" to previously hidden, un-realized value in various businesses...  not unlike what happened with Groupon ... looking back, it seems so simple .... but they did, indeed crack a code...  and there are more to come.
