8 Things Google Nexus Q Will Do for Music Fans | Evolver.fm | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

Change Color With the Beat. The spherical Google Nexus Q has “32 LEDs” around it that “shift and change color in time to your music,” sort of like a software visualizer. Google says you’ll be able to choose your favorite effect. This sounds cool.


Social Music Selection. As with the Sonos system, Google Nexus Q will allow multiple people to add songs to a queue. This could make it attractive to people in offices, apartments with multiple roommates, and family homes. However, you’ll only be able to add the songs to the queue from an Android phone or tablet. In the video below, Google says this is “the first device that lets you create a social playlist with your friends.” That is utter hokum, but the feature is still great to have.

Digital Music News - What If I Told You the Concert Industry Is Now Bigger Than the Recording Industry... | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

Want to make it in the new music industry? Then make sure you have the chops to play in front of a crowd. According to the latest estimates from University of Liverpool researcher Dave Laing, the global touring industry has probably grown larger than the global recording industry.


And if 2012 is roughly the breakpoint, the broader trend is fairly obvious. "The first indications of the market last year (such as Pollstar's 4 percent increase in North American ticket sales) suggest that the live business worldwide may have returned to growth and may have definitively overtaken the record industry in revenue terms," Laing described in an overview recently published by Live Music Exchange.

More Evidence That Streaming Can Pay: Label Earns Nearly 80 Percent of Revenue from Spotify | Evolver.fm

More Evidence That Streaming Can Pay: Label Earns Nearly 80 Percent of Revenue from Spotify | Evolver.fm | New Music Industry | Scoop.it

According to Swedish pop label Hybris, over the course of the last six months – the same six months for which many recording artists aren’t seeing royalties yet – Spotify’s current payouts to the label for a 2005 hit single have eclipsed what it made selling the song on CD, back when it was a top ten radio hit. According to the head of that label, this doesn’t quite represent a return to the glory days of the ’90s before the internets stole everybody’s candy, but it adds to our mounting pile of evidence (tag: $potify) that streaming music can pay.

Eric Lucas's curator insight, March 21, 7:40 PM
Evolved I’ve never heard of but the article was interesting in that the one question  I thought was going to get answered didn’t.  How much royalties does Spotify pay?
