How The Internet Changed Music

How The Internet Changed Music | The shift in the industry | Scoop.it
The Internet has made an impact on almost every aspect of music. To know and understand these changes can help you in a career in music.
Joshua JReeder's insight:

The article focuses on the good and the bad of how the internet impacts the music industry as a whole. As it is today people can easily access the music that they desire which hurts the players in the industry given they are paid by royalties. How can you pay a royalty deserved by someone if the access is open for free. Many artist feel like maybe just performing live would solve those problems but also cause more. The flip side is that not one artist is restricted to the big labels for the attention they need. These independent labels can now do their own leg work to get their name out there. The internet is not going to go anywhere, so adapting to what is is the only direction to go.

How big data can change the music industry

How big data can change the music industry | The shift in the industry | Scoop.it
Let's rethink how we monetize music.
Joshua JReeder's insight:

This article helps to open up the idea of finding a more prominent  source of income towards artist. We are moving into a new era that is restricting funds owed to artist for their work. Finding new sources of payment is where the industry should be researching given that we have already trampled into a new generation of technologies. At some point music will be controlled more by the listener than the industry distributing it. Building different avenues for revenue is the focus of the future, and doing it sooner than later will better benefit the artist and the industry as a whole.

Joshua JReeder's insight:

There is tons of money being made in streaming music today, and I am sure that little of it will be seen by the artists. When you lose the ownership, access will be controlled by the bigger organizations. There was a time during which independent artists made enough to have a decent living based off of their career. Sadly for most of us wanting to go into that line of work, that time is rapidly passing. I have to ask the music lovers out there. Can you imagine your life without music in it? If not, what are you willing to do to support the artists who create the music that you love?

It has become commonplace to hear artists, management, agents and labels complain about how stream...
Joshua JReeder's insight:

It's interesting to read this and comprehend how it could actually work out. I'm not sure how combining the streaming of music with your phone plan will work out but it's better than doing nothing at all about it. Bundling the type of music an individual likes and charging a monthly fee for those artist seems like a pretty solid idea towards a permanent fix. But again with the technologies and the access that present themselves even today, it would be eventually hard to control that as well

How the Business of Streaming Music Will Change Culture...For the Better

How the Business of Streaming Music Will Change Culture...For the Better | The shift in the industry | Scoop.it
By paying out only when people actually listen instead of suckering fans into buying something only to leave it on the shelf, Spotify, MOG, Rdio, Rhapsody, and other on-demand unlimited music services build an incentive into the music business to create works of lasting value.
Joshua JReeder's insight:

This article explains the history of how one generation of music spills into the next. Sales of records have went down do to the overflow of songs the artist puts out that fans are not interested in. Artist do not have to work as hard to make fans do to these streaming songs that catch the attention of listeners through hooks and the way they deliver to the listener. If artist made music that focused more on the want of the fan, then their would not be so much unused music out there that is being played through streaming apps that fans just skip over.
