Agile Music (the Midem Speech) For those of you who weren’t able to make it to Midem last week here are the text and main graphics from my Midem Visionary Monday speech. L’industrie musicale se remet à flow. Après plus d’une décennie de mines défaites, le monde de la musique souffle un peu : le marché mondial a, pour la première fois depuis 1999, stoppé sa chute.

L’industrie musicale se remet à flow

Mieux : en 2012, il a progressé d’un tout petit 0,3% , derrière lequel se cachent des mutations jamais vues dans un secteur qui a peiné à s’adapter au tsunami Internet. Désormais, le numérique s’est hissé au rang de candidat valable pour succéder un jour au CD, tandis que de nouveaux marchés prometteurs s’ouvrent. Mais ce chambardement tous azimuts laisse des cadavres sur le bas-côté - dont le service français de téléchargement Beezik, qui a annoncé sa fermeture jeudi -, et se fait aussi au prix d’une hyperconcentration qui pose de nombreuses questions. Une industrie à plusieurs vitesses. How Spotify Changed Music. We used to listen to music on our mobile devices in private.

How Spotify Changed Music

Now, we share our listening activities to Facebook and show our friends the song we are currently playing. If they want to, they can even tune in and listen with us. Rather than listen to music alone, we now listen together. And of course, we now listen to playlists over albums. Indeed, what once seemed like a utopia to many listeners — having free, ad-supported access to millions of songs on your desktop and paying to take them anywhere you go — has become a new reality. Radio.SC Turns SoundCloud Users into Radio Stations. SoundCloud was originally designed to help musicians send songs (or bits of songs) to each other and their “people” within the industry. Maybe that’s why it still has so many users who seem to be either professionally, semi-professionally, or just obsessively involved with music. We hear SoundCloud even has a really cool Fletch ringtone among its many treasures, which include early mixes, remixes, exclusives, mashups, and other super fresh material from various excellent people.

BPI figures reveal UK music industry's digital growth in 2011. The BPI released its latest trade figures for the British music industry yesterday, revealing that total recorded music trade revenues fell 3.4% to £795.4m in 2011, although digital revenues grew by 24.7% to £281.6m – 35.4% of overall sales. The body says that digital growth is now offsetting two thirds of the decline in income from sales of physical recorded music. The BPI also hailed the performance of digital albums in 2011, with £117.8m in trade income, up 43.2% year-on-year, and set to overtake income from digital single tracks in 2012 if current trends continue. “It is highly encouraging for the long-term prospects of the industry that the pace of digital growth continues to accelerate,” says chief executive Geoff Taylor.

The figures reveal that subscription-based digital music services generated £24m of trade income in 2011 – up 47.5% year-on-year, although only accounting for 3% of total sales. Ad-supported services’ revenues fell 1.4% to £10.7m for the year.

Streaming. Etats-Unis: Il est légal de revendre sa musique numérique. A l'époque des vinyls ou des CD, on pouvait en toute légalité revendre un disque pour lequel on n'avait plus d'intérêt.

Etats-Unis: Il est légal de revendre sa musique numérique

Cette possibilité a disparu avec la musique légalement acquise, qui est attachée de manière irrévocable à l'identité de celui qui l'a acquise, interdisant de fait toute revente.Une jurisprudence aux Etats-Unis pourrait remettre en question ce bel édifice qui ne peut que faire les affaires de majors. Le mois dernier, un site appelé ReDigi s'est lancé dans un nouveau business, le rachat de la musique numérique usagée. Le business du site est simple. Il rachète 0,32$ les fichiers (toutes plateformes confondues) et les revend 0,59$. Bien entendu les majors se sont émues de ce business et ont immédiatement trainé ReDigi en justice. Il serait d'ailleurs peut-être temps que la justice, toujours plus prompte à pénaliser le téléchargement illégal, s'intéresse aussi à encadrer son pendant légal.

Musique et possession : ce que veulent les fans

Why You Should Give Your Music Away for Free. Digital music caught the record labels off guard and smashed their business to pieces, and from the rubble new economic realities are emerging. In this new reality, most independent artists, especially those who are just starting out, should give their music away for free. Sound crazy? Maybe, but hear me out. It boils down to 3 main concepts. Starting with… Study: FM Radio Is Still the Biggest Source for Music Discovery. Sunday, November 13, 2011 by paul. Launches Music App Directory.

Full tracks are sometimes thrown in as a “free” extra to motivate people to take out a mobile subscription or data plan or to top up their prepaid credit. An example of the latter is Orange’s Monkey prepaid plan in the UK, in which users get free music for topping up as little as £5 (US$7.75). Statistics published in some European countries have shown sharp declines in mobile full-track music sales over the past year or two.

Music fans have plenty of options for discovering music these days: blogs, magazines, newspapers, podcasts, internet radio, YouTube, the Hype Machine, Hitlantis, Discovr, and other too many other apps to mention here.

We appreciate these tools, but the tried-and-true method of just asking your friends what they’re listening to still works as well as it ever did, which is the angle taken by a new Facebook music app called Rexly. Bringing music discovery back to its social roots in the real world, Rexly founder and CEO Joel Resnicow and his San Francisco-based team launched Rexly at last week’s TechCrunch Disrupt conference.

As music listening shifted from beautiful if clunky stereo systems to the internet, developers found ways to take the work of choosing what to play next out of the listeners’ hands, and into warm embrace of algorithmic intelligence. The concept is simple, though the practice is not: Create a recommendation service that gathers and organizes musical traits and characteristics with which to provide listeners with a streamlined playlist of similar songs by like-minded artists, which each listener can edit and refine, homing in on their ideal personalized radio stations.

Online interactive radio stations aren’t new, of course — trailblazers Pandora and Last.fm will both celebrate their tenth years of existence in the year to come — but their status as major players in the radio game is (relatively) new. Slacker Launches On-Demand Music Service. Say what you want about its name, but Slacker’s no slouch. The company, spawned by three veterans from the first digital music revolution (iRiver, Rio and MusicMatch), has gained plenty of fans over the years for its interactive streaming service, somewhat along the lines of Pandora. Today, it announced the availability of an on-demand music subscription, somewhat along the lines of Rhapsody.

According to Slacker, it is now the only company to offer a full-fledged interactive radio service as well as an on-demand subscription service — currently with over eight million songs.

Apple will soon have a Cloud iTunes too. Music streaming subscriptions are the way forward, says Featured Artists Coalition. Spotify recently announced that its free music streaming service wouldn't be quite so free anymore, with subscription-free listening now reduced from 20 hours to 10. While there might be a groan from those who signed up for the service all that time ago, what exactly does it mean for the musicians behind the tracks? The music industry is a complicated beast, so we had a chat with Featured Artists Coalition CEO, Mark Kelly (pictured right with Marillion band mate Steve Hogarth) to shed some light on the subject. He told us: "It's a difficult one to judge. Big 5 Music Subscriptions Reviewed: Should You Make the Leap? Compared to things like bicycles or shoes, music subscription services are remarkably undifferentiated. They all have more or less the same selection of music, and it’s generally available for the same monthly prices: $5 for listening on a computer, and another $5 to add mobile device(s).

But in practice, several factors and details offer music fans some degree of choice between the big five, should they decide, in the manner of our early ancestors, that they’re ready to quit hunting and gathering for downloads and free streams and hunker down to the “agriculture” of a monthly music subscription that can sustain all of their musical needs without requiring nearly as much legwork or incremental costs. If you’re ready to move past paying for digital downloads and foraging for whatever you can eke out of MP3 blogs and YouTube, check out these reviews of the big 5 cloud-based on-demand music subscription services to decide which one best suits your needs.
