New Trends in the Music Industry in the Aftermath of Covid-19

New Trends in the Music Industry in the Aftermath of Covid-19 | What's Happening With Music Now? | Scoop.it

Like other industries, the music industry is also learning about how to make money and operate in this new strange routine. COVID-19 hit the music industry hard in the course of March, as streaming numbers dropped and, as a result of social distancing and quarantine, the live concert revenue stream was shut down. To find out more about changes in the music industry, check out this article.

This article is defiantly a must read and very important article all artist and producer should really read this because of the times that were' in the music industry is taking a huge shift due to this pandemic
Dawn VanDam's curator insight, August 26, 12:42 PM

Here are 4 ways COVID-19 will affect the music industry:

 

1.  Artificial intelligence music will boom- The musical production powered by artificial intelligence has been around for several years and was recently known as OpenAI, a San Francisco based research laboratory. Jukebox, a device that generates songs of popular artists' styles, was unveiled by the company. The tool was so successful that the reading and songs produced by AI in the style of JAY-Z were informed by Roc Nation.

 

For the music industry, it seems to make good sense to take chances from investing in new artists. Find out what artists and songs people enjoy now, get the recipe, and do more. It is terrible for the art but more like an actuality for the future, as the end is more important than ever. Due to COVID-19, AI- driven music may prosper.

 

2.  Fewer fans and physical contact between artists - News media indicate that large concerts will not come back in 2020 due to COVID-19 as waves of cancellations and postponement are already announced, including big summer festivals and concert tours. One of the most profitable aspects of the concert industry in recent years has been concerts and artists meet and greet.

 

 Even after a vaccination has been put in place, it feels that the intimate bond between fan and artist triggered by these experiences can be left for good and replaced with more exclusive social interactions. Instead of meeting and greeting in person, the artist can call a fan in Facetime on his / her own unique basis, and provide temporary access to texts from the fan or interaction with social media to exchange messages.

 

3.  The internet is going to handle the music industry - Unless you’ve lived under a socially distant rock, you might have known about the very populous Verzuz fight sequence of Instagram Live launched by Swizz Beatz and Timbaland. The song-for-song battles all played out on IG Live have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors to match legendary artists and producers, such as DJ Premier and RZa, Ludacris and Nelly. And as soon as anyone can say in this COVID-19 situation, Swizz and Timbaland have built a strong brand with fans who exchange ideas and generate major streaming spikes for the artists.

 

4.  New concert experiences - Even when there is a coronavirus vaccine, live concert experiences are likely to have changed forever. Denmark has recently brought back concerts with another twist while music fans have gained access to designated car parks for an artist named Mads Langer 's drive-in concert. And though the idea seems to be there, even today, the benefits of a drive-in concert are real both for the artist and musicians. Many people do not want to see a concert with others shoulder by shoulder, and in the past, we saw many instances where thousands of people in a confined space can have disastrous consequences.

Apart from the drive-in concert, due to the COVID-19 situation, Canyon Entertainment Group has launched virtual concert series to help cater the artists and fans. As the world continues to evolve, people know that they may once again be open to new ways to fulfil their hunger as for concerts and music shows.

Here are 4 ways COVID-19 will affect the music industry:

1.Raising money for charities online-Streaming online motivates musicians to use their platform and followers to raise money for good causes through live streams.One of these streaming services include big platforms like Twitch and YouTube which are platforms used by both gamers, musicians,and artist to reach that online audience and help raise money for different charities. Both programs are successful tools used for streaming as well as using it to help setup FaceTime/Zoom call related charity events to help raise money while we are still in quarantine and trying to maintain a safe distance of 6 feet apart which helps with the chances of the virus not being passed on.

2.Fewer fans and physical contact between artists-According to the news media,roughly 350 electronic festivals had been canceled or postponed due to COVID-19 as events were canceled all throughout the world.This included big summer festivals and big Ibiza seasons which is one of most profitable aspects where big and upcoming artists do meet and greets.This is one of those things that is a major part of the concert industry which is definitely one of those things that COVID-19 has definitely impacted throughout the duration of this pandemic.

3.Continued growth in streaming- During the pandemic, especially Europe and the United States, streaming fell immediately after lock downs. This mainly left a bigger impact on the Electronic/Dance genre compared to the others which is increasing the amount of streaming subscriptions giving other platforms that subsequent rebound. With programs such as Bandcamp and etc, they are experiencing big revenue growth while adding value and attracting more people due to COVID-19 reasons and that fear of contracting the virus.

4.New concert experiences-If you do not play video games, you might not have known that games such as Fortnite include virtual concerts for their longtime users in the game something fun to enjoy. One example of this is when Epic Games included a virtual Marshmello concert which helped the game build on that success.This allowed Marshmello to help build a stronger connection with his fans as well as introducing himself to new fans that have never heard of not just him, but his music as well.

As the music industry evolves due to Covid-19 many are seeing new trends. Such as the AI technology being developed aid in production. This being created eliminates the use of finding new artists and relying on AI technology to create existing artist styles to fill the demand of new music. The COVID-19 also is causing artists to gravitate towards streaming services and is creating a decline in fan-artist interactions due to social distancing protocols. This will lead to a rise in music streaming platforms and lead artists into more a personal approach when it comes to delivering their music. Music will evolve back into a tangible state and promote more live performances and exclusive events. The influence of music has a powerful force to create change and give hope. Many artists today are focusing on bring uplifting content instead of focusing on the reality of hardship that been sweeping the globe due to COVID-19.

This article in my opinion was great because theirs a lot of artist and producers that are blowing up of YouTube but doesn't realize that it's not that easy and simple to get famous over night , However i don't agree with the fact that in this article the writer stated that youtube is the worst thing happen to the music business.
Darrell Dobson's curator insight, May 21, 2017 10:00 PM
YouTube is the worst thing to happen to the music industry since Napster in1999. Billions of videos are contributing peanuts towards ad revenue. Many have a conflicted relationship with YouTube, there is a generational conflict dividing the field. It has been the label that has sat between the artist and the audience
